Description An alternative court where first time offenders are defended, prosecuted, judged and sentenced by their teen peers. Teens are referred with misdemeanors if they are willing to take responsibility for their actions and plead guilty. Teen Court is a way of keeping the juvenile's record clean. The charge is taken off their record once the teen successfully completes his or her sentence. Services offered are community service, service on jury panel, treatment programs, mediation, GED completion, educational classes, prevention classes, and counseling.
