To Kill a Mockingbird

How does Scout in "To Kill a Mockingbird" mature during the trial?

I need to know how she transitions from her innocence to experience, focusing mainly on the trial. I will also need quotes to prove this.... someone help me?

Scout saw the trial and was more sad than anything else. Initially she describes the trial as a carnival atmosphere. Scout feels badly for Mayella, she thinks that Mayella must have been the loneliest person in the world. Scout is even more saddened when the Jury walks in. She knows, from watching other trials, that Juries (who don't look at the person on trial) have found them guilty. Jem is shocked and crying when the verdict comes down, Scout is heartbroken. Scout discovers that "good" does not always win over "evil" and that her father is a lot more special than just a good shot.

Thanks alot!

Sure ting!
