This week I had the opportunity to sit in on criminal court proceedings I chose to visit the White Plains Court House for the day and noticed quite a few things through out the whole experience I have been to different courts in the past criminal traffic and family but never in the White Plains building There were many details of the proceedings the image and even the conditions of everything from the building itself to the people involved that I found particularly interestingThe first thing I thought when I entered the building was that it was not crowded In previous visits to Yonkers court the place was packed let alone confusing This courthouse was different The hallways were very modern and clean and it felt fresh to me not dark and dismal like it could have been I guess I have to also consider that I didnt have any charges against me so I wasnt entering the building expecting to hate being there I was surprised by the security measures It seemed as if it was too easy to get through I expected to have three or four metal detectors lined up for a big crowd but there was only one Right away I got the sense that the size of the building was not reflective of the amount of cases per day it accommodates After speaking with one of the guards I was referred to the criminal court room rather than the family court due to what he called a more interesting day I later got the impression that he just wanted someone to talk to during the proceedings because he kept coming over and asking me questions and commenting on cases The courtroom itself I thought was way too small There were only two and a half rows for people to sit and watch forcing many people to have to wait outside That I thought was not a well thought out design
