Wichita County Teen Court was established June 1, 1997. September 1997 the first trials were held in the 30th District Courtroom. Initially approximately 200 cases were heard annually. Fast forward 20 years and there are approximately 325 cases heard in a year. Court meets on Tuesday nights with the exception of the last Tuesday when the Jr. Bar conducts their business. There is a blend of methods for trials as a result in statute changes. This court hears School Court Cases, those that occurred on campus, and imposes the required Graduated Sanctions. Traffic cases are conducted before a “master jury.” All other cases are heard in our traditional courtroom located in the Wichita County Annex Bldg. The Wichita County Teen Court is administered by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wichita Falls but functions independently of their governance and finance.
