Mission Statement

The purpose and intent of the program is to involve young people in taking responsibility for their actions, and to give the community an active role in dealing with juvenile offenders in the hopes of reducing recidivism rates of youth in the county.

Description

Teen Court is an alternative system of justice, which offers first-time juvenile offenders age 11-18 an opportunity to admit responsibility for their offenses and receive a constructive sentence from their peers. Teen Court also provides a "hands on" educational experience for student volunteers in an effort to help them better understand our justice system.
