Teen Court Offenses in South Dakota
Why This Indicator Matters
Teen Court is a diversion program offered mainly to first time offenders ages 10-18, who are currently enrolled in an accredited school curriculum. Members of the Teen Court (e.g. attorneys, jury, bailiff and clerks) are student volunteers and returning defendants. They work to create a legal and binding sentence for the defendant based on the following principles of Restorative Justice:
- What harm has been done?
- Who has been harmed?
- What can be done to repair the harm?
