Our Next Immense Possibility
Friday, March 14, at 8:30pm on SOPTV & in the “Current IP” video box below:*
Our justice system tells defendants they’re entitled to trial by a jury of their peers–unless they happen to be under age. ¬†That’s changing. ¬†With the avid support of judges, attorneys and community volunteers, youth or¬†teen courts are spreading across the country. ¬†Teen jurors (many of them former offenders themselves) have a knack for finding amazingly effective consequences for offenders, and teen attorneys, according to one California Supreme Court Justice, “are often more skilled than some professionals who appear before me.”
Our guests come from the Shasta Youth/Peer Court system, and from Mediation Works’ accountability programs. ¬†If you’re skeptical that juvenile offenders can be nurtured back to lives of healthy, productive generosity, ¬†tune in to hear their stories.
