It is a youth-run court in which juvenile offenders are held accountable for their actions by a jury of their peers. Teen Court is a diversion program, with the goal of offering youth an alternative to juvenile detention. This program is based upon the philosophy of restorative justice rather than punishment. This school-based program offers all participants, student advocates as well as offenders, the unique opportunity to learn about the consequences of criminal behavior and how it affects their community. This program is accessed through referrals by the Prosecutor's Office. Learn More.
