Teen Court is a program for teens, ages 10-17, who commit misdemeanor crimes or ordinance violations such as curfew, the
ft, disorderly conduct, underage alcohol or tobacco use, or minor criminal damage. First time offenders admit their guilt and voluntarily enter the Teen Court System as an alternative to Juvenile Court. The Teen Court Panel is made up of 4-6 high school volunteers who go through training in Restorative Justice. They determine an appropriate sentence for the youth offender.
