Our city runs a Teen court that is an option for non-violent youth offenders. They have teens volunteer to be on the jury and they help decide on consequences and a rehab plan. The offenders participate voluntarily and if they go through the program successfully the offense is wiped.from their record.as kind of a one time do-over.
The teens get service hours and to be part of a really interesting ;process. Sometimes one of the options for offenders is to return as jury members.
Ian went to the "New juror training" last night and they did a mock trial and had a blast. They do court 2x a month so he will be going this coming Wednesday.
Anyone every participate or have a child who does?
