How Does Teen Court Work?

Cases are presented in the Oconto County Courthouse in front of the Teen Panel. Everyone in the courtroom takes an oath of confidentiality. The offender is sworn in and questioned by the teen panel to determine the circumstances of the offense. After carefully listening to the facts, the teen panel leaves the courtroom to discuss a constructive sentence for the defendant. Examples of sentences could include letters of apology, community service, essays, projects, counseling or workshops.
