Teen Court
Teen Court is a diversion program run by teens for teens. Criminal offenders between the ages of 10 and 17 who have committed a first offense misdemeanor or third degree felony are sentenced by a jury of their peers. Teens perform the roles of prosecutor, defense attorney, bailiff, clerk, and jury. A local volunteer attorney presides as judge and is the only adult directly involved in the court proceedings.
