The Huntington Youth Court Program is run for youth by youth. Youth offenders up to 18, who have committed their first misdemeanor crime, are given the opportunity to have their case heard by a jury of their peers. In addition, Youth Court accepts referrals of offenders who commit a violation against their school’s Code of Conduct. In a trial setting, volunteer youth perform the roles of prosecuting and defending attorney, judge, bailiff, and jury. A jury then hands down an appropriate sentence to the offender.”
