Teens hold court

January 23, 2012

On appearance, it looks and sounds like real court.


There’s a judge, a jury, defendants and attorneys.

There’s even a sworn Newton police officer who serves as the court’s “bailiff.”

However, when the “charges” are discussed and the verdict is read, it’s clear this isn’t exactly a court room.

“The jury thinks the defendant should do one day of silent lunch and write their teacher an apology letter,” read Austin Drum, a sixth-grade student at Newton-Conover Middle School and the lead juror at the school’s Teen Court recently.
