Pima County Teen Court

Telephone
(520) 326-2528 x2147
Pima County Teen Court is a diversion program for minors who have been arrested and have admitted guilt to their crime. These teens choose to be sentenced by a jury of their peers instead of going through the Pima County Juvenile Justice Court system. All participants in the courtroom are teens, except for the judge. Teen Court works because the teens are judged by their peers. While the negative influences of peer pressure often lead teens to make poor choices, Teen Court depends on positive peer pressure and parental involvement for the success of its program.
