Arlington Teen Court is a voluntary program which allows juvenile Class C misdemeanor offenders to "pay" for their citation through community service and involvement in the judicial process. These cases are presented by volunteer Teen Court attorneys to a jury of the defendant's peers made up of volunteers from local secondary schools and returning youth who were previously defendants. Upon successful completion of the program, the defendant's citation will be dismissed.
Arlington Teen Court strives to help juvenile offenders take responsibility for their actions, increase awareness of the law, to decrease the rate of recidivism, teach them to make better decisions in the future, and promote community involvement by providing volunteer opportunities to youth and adults. Arlington Teen Court will fulfill this vision with an emphasis on high quality service delivery to all stakeholders.
