Colorado Springs Teen Court

Teen Court is a unique justice program for first time offenders of misdemeanor crimes. It is designed to give youth between the ages of 11 and 18 who have broken the law and admitted their guilt, a second chance. Those who are accepted into the program must go to a "sentencing trial" in a real courtroom with teens serving as prosecuting and defense attorneys. An adult judge presides and a teen jury determines the sentence, which includes mandatory community service and jury duty in future Teen Courts. Upon successful completion of the program charges against the defendant are dismissed.
