The Waukesha County Teen Court program offers first-time offenders an opportunity to receive a meaningful sentence from a jury of their peers. The Teen Court experience provides youth with an alternative to appearing in municipal court and/or paying a fine. Youth who agree to attend Teen Court admit their guilt and they agree to allow a jury of teens to set a sentence. Teens who successfully complete their sentence will have the original charge dismissed from their record. Sentences typically include 20-50 hours of community service and mandatory participation in 3-5 future Teen Courts as a member of the jury and/or as an attorney. At times, other sentences include an apology letter, a written assignment (such as a 500-word essay outlining the risks of drugs or consequences of risky behaviors), or participation in Victim Impact programs.
Teen Court is operated as a program of Waukesha County Health & Human Services (HHS) in partnership with the Waukesha County Courts. Judge Lloyd Carter has authorized the use of this program consistent with Wisconsin Stature 938.343 (2M). The program functions with volunteer support, to include HHS employees as volunteers, as well as attorneys who serve as judges.
