- What is Teen Court?
Teen Court is an alternative sentencing program that provides you the opportunity to keep the charges off of your criminal and/or traffic record. During the teen court hearing, you will be represented by a volunteer teen attorney and a sentence will be imposed by a jury of your peers under the guidance of a Municipal Court Judge.
