Meeting with the teen court
The Teen Court Program is based on the philosophy that because youth are sensitive to the opinions of their peers, they will accept a sentence of consequences from a Teen Jury and hopefully be less likely to become repeat violators in the future. A major goal of Teen Court is to interrupt unlawful activity before a pattern of lawbreaking develops. This is done by promoting feelings of self-worth, encouraging self-improvement and demonstrating a healthy attitude toward authority. In a positive manner, the Teen Court Jury challenges the respondents to perform at their highest levels and holds them accountable to themselves, their family and the community. Research indicates that a Teen Court Program is effective in keeping youth from re-offending and it also saves the community thousands of dollars.

Sarasota Teen Court - PROCESS
A juvenile justice diversion program for early teen offenders where youth, accompanied by their parents, go in front of an adult judge and a jury of teen peers, who create unique and restorative sentences, rather than the traditional juvenile justice or school disciplinary process. Typical crimes referred to Teen Court include alcohol and drug offenses, petty theft, burglary, assault, driving offenses, curfew violations, trespassing, graffiti and vandalism. The youth must take responsibility for their offense before attending their peer review hearing and agree to accept the sentence provided by the jury. There is a fee for all services and a sliding fee scale is available upon request. No client will be turned away due to inability to pay for services.

What is Teen Court?
The past two decades have seen the rise of a new alternative in juvenile justice. A group of diversionary programs called Teen Courts also known as Youth or Peer Courts have taken on a large share of the caseload from the heavily-burdened traditional juvenile justice system. How do youth come to Teen Court? At the initial meeting with the local Teen Court Coordinator, the youth explains the incident and the coordinator determines whether the youth is eligible for a Teen Court hearing.
Staff determines the most appropriate and effective means of helping the teen and provides the teen with information about the process, and what to expect. As part of the assessment, a drug test is administered. The judge in Teen Court is an adult from the law community, a lawyer, judge, or law enforcement officer. The jury in Teen Court consists of juveniles, both former defendants and teen volunteers from the community. One or more Teen Attorneys interview the defendant and act as the defense attorneys in the proceeding.
