Fayette County Teen Court

Teen Court is an alternate sentencing option for 7th-12th graders who have a misdemeanor charge. During a hearing, all of the court roles are filled by youth volunteers including Prosecuting Attorney, Defense Attorney, Clerk, Bailiff and Jury. Teen Court is open to any 7th-12th grader in Fayette County

Monthly Hearings

Teen Court meets on the 4th Monday of every month at the Courthouse Annex Building in Fayetteville, West Virginia. Hearings are not open to the public because of confidentiality.

How Does Teen Court Work?

This program is based on the philosophy that a Juvenile Offender does not continue to be an offender when a peer jury decides their consequences.
Participation in this program is entirely voluntary and must have parental/guardian consent. Juvenile Offenders learn to take responsibility for their actions.
