On February 2, 2017, CJ 235 (Courts and Justice) had the privilege of a visit from Ashland County's three duly elected judges: Honorable John Good, Honorable Damian Vercillo and Honorable Ronald Forsthoefel.
Judge Good presides over Ashland Municipal Court, Judge Vercillo over probate/juvenile Court as a Common Pleas Court, General Division Judge and Judge Forsthoefel over criminal, civil and domestic Court as a Common Pleas Court, General Division Judge.
The Judges discussed with students their professional backgrounds and how their legal paths contributed to their elections as Judges. Among the topics discussed by the Jurists were their respective caseloads, the different types of cases that each court handles, budgetary concerns and evolving legal trends they have witnessed transpiring as members of the judiciary. The Courts answered student questions during class and remained after class to speak informally with students who remained to introduce themselves.
Thank you, Judge Good, Judge Vercillo and Judge Forsthoefel, for taking the time from your busy schedules to speak to Ashland University criminal justice students.
