Teen court...

Anyone have a child participate?

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?

 No, my child has not participated in this but I have heard about a program like this locally.

 I think it is a great idea!  I know my DD loved her civics class last year especially when they did this type of lesson. 

 It is a very nice way for kids to learn about the process and also be a active member of our young society.
