What is Teen Court? Teen Court is a program that offers teenage offenders an important second chance - a chance to learn from their mistake without the high cost and stigma of a criminal record. Teen Court is a real justice program run by teens for teens. The crime is generally a first offense, and the respondent must admit involvement since this is a disposition sentencing hearing only. Teen Court is offered as a positive experience to divert a first time teen offender away from a pattern of criminal behavior. Cases heard in Teen Court involve crimes such as shoplifting, disorderly conduct, destruction of property and possession of alcohol to name a few. In Teen Court, volunteer teens perform the roles of the prosecuting and defense attorneys, bailiff, clerk and jury.
