The Gwinnett County Youth Diversion Program works with certain first-time juvenile offenders and their families by offering an alternative to the juvenile court system. The program is based on the widely accepted belief that not all cases are best handled through formal delinquency complaints and court hearings. The program provides first-time nonviolent offenders the opportunity to resolve the matter within the community without beingprosecuted through the traditional court process.
Their cases are heard before a jury of their peers and sanctions are assigned for the defendant to complete. Kids won't let other kids' manipulate the system. This is truly peer pressure at its finest. For all Teen Court events, please be aware of the environment that you are in and dress accordingly.
All Juvenile Dockets are on the 2nd Monday at 1 pm and a Summons for the child and parent are sent the address given by the juvenile at the time of citation. Attorneys Representing Juveniles are required to be present at the Juvenile docket along with the child and parent. The municipal court has jurisdiction over juveniles 16 years or younger charged with most Class C misdemeanor offenses.
