The City of Bryan Teen Court, established in January 2008, is a diversion program designed to offer an alternative to formal juvenile court proceedings. At Teen Court’s sentencing phase hearings, trained Bryan Collegiate High School students volunteer using a Peer Jury format, roughly modeled after the process used by a grand jury, perform the courtroom roles of clerk, bailiff, juror, defense attorney and prosecutor. Teen Court is generally held during the academic school year on every other Thursday with 2 to 6 trials a month. Majority of these cases are traffic and/or theft related.
