What is Teen Court?
Teen Court is a specially designed court that hears only certain Class C misdemeanor cases (excluding speeding 25+ miles over the posted limit, offenses in a work zone, fail to stop/passing a school bus, assault, drug, alcohol or tobacco without prosecutor and Judge approval). The individual cases are defended and prosecuted by teen attorneys and the verdict is rendered by a jury of teens. The Judge for Georgetown Municipal Court serves as the Teen Court Judge.
The City of Georgetown, in cooperation with Georgetown Independent School District and Williamson County, administers the Teen Court program. All Teen Court sessions are open to the public.
All Teen Court sessions are held at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at 101 E. 7th St. Defendants and teen attorneys should be in the courtroom by 5:00 p.m. and all jurors by 5:45 p.m.
