ABOUT TEEN COURT
As the Deputy Chief of the Juvenile Division at the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, Morrow initiated a juvenile diversion program called “Teen Court.” The program allows juvenile offenders who have committed relatively minor, first-time offenses (such as shoplifting), to avoid having a juvenile record if they comply with the terms of the program. The program, which is currently operating in seven high schools in the Detroit Public School system, is unique in that it allows a “jury” of teenagers to hear actual juvenile cases and design appropriate sentences for the juvenile offender. The program not only gives a second chance to teens who made a poor decision, but it also gives the teenager jurors the opportunity for public service and a hands-on education in civic responsibility.
