(by mountain peak Putman, human race Mag.com) – Sarah Mc Gowan watches the functionary on justice Judy and all month looks fore to having the authority of a official in her local young Court: “That’s my favorite part: call at people.” The not-so-favorite part: in flood heels. “My feet hurt,” she complained to her mom at the end of a case. Sarah participates in the Williamson County young Court in central Texas: It’s one of approximately 1,037 youth courts that operate in 48 states.
Teen Court is a community-based, soul intervention/prevention thought that offers an choice to the juvenile official system. This diversion-like program alone accepts individual offenders with first-time, nonviolent, misdemeanor charges. These offenders are seen by youth volunteers from the community who act as peer attorneys, bailiffs, judges and jurors.
