Activities: Young offenders appear for hearings in teen court find the lawyer, prosecutor, and jury members are all teenagers. The judge or judges may be young, and teenagers may manage much of what happens in the courtroom. Young offenders rarely get off with a warning in teen court—almost every case ends with some type of sanction or penality. Defendants may be required to repair vandalized property, replace stolen goods, perform community service, or write apology letters to their victims and/or parents. Some may have to return to teen court to serve on juries.
