DANVILLE — Danville’s Mock Trial teams are blowing away the competition. At a district competition on Feb. 3, Danville Team Black and Danville Team Green qualified to advanced to regional competition, two of only three district teams to advance to the Feb. 24 competition.

The 2012 simulated case involves Storm Jackson, a college freshman who is accused of stealing prescription drugs while attending two real estate open houses and while visiting at the houses of two friends. The defendant and his parents’ names were on a sign-in list at both of the open houses. Without a warrant, the police subpoenaed and obtained Jackson’s cell phone GPS records before he was arrested. Jackson has filed a motion to suppress claiming that the evidence seized was the result of an improper search and seizure that violated his Fourth Amendment rights.

The district match was held in the Muskingum County Courthouse, Zanesville, and Danville’s teams competed in a total of six trials against Granville, Bishop Rosecrans, Indian Valley and Meadow Brook High.
