Judge Herman Marable has served 20 years on the 68th District Court bench. Over that time he has been active in helping high school students through his charitable initiative : Judge Marable's Student of the Month. He describes how he has helped mentor Flint area youth to attend college and set goals for themselves. His program has worked in conjunction with James Madison College at Michigan State University to introduce Flint area students to the requirements of college. Judge Marable also shares his concerns about how juries in Genesee County are selected. The Courts have long sought to have a broad cross section of jurors representative of the entire community. However, the inclusion of minorities and some senior citizens who don't have access to the internet and technology are not able to complete their juror questionnaires leaving them out of the pool of potential jurors. This poses a problem for the community as in some cases no minorities serve at all on Genesee County juries and thus don't reflect the community as a whole.Lastly, Judge Marable shares with us his personal story of his family and growing up in the Flint area.
