The North Dakota Supreme court took the courtroom on the road today.

The five justices and attorneys went to Dakota Prairie High School in Petersburg to hear arguments in the appeal case of Darrin Dahl.

Dahl was convicted of harrassment and reckless endangerment in December.

Right before the trial Dahl fired his court appointed attorney and represented himself at trial.

The students watching the proceedings say they didn't realize how intense the appeal process was.

Alex Kroke: "I didn't realize how brutal some of the questions can be

from the supreme court justices to the lawyers, it was pretty eye

opening."

Shelby Mikkelson: "Not many people know what exactly they do so with

them coming to our school and showing us, maybe some people might want

to do something like that when they grow up.">

Dahl was sentenced to 2 years in prison.
