Teen Court Jury Duty Requirements and Conduct

After you have your hearing at Teen Court, you will return on one Monday night to serve as a jury member. Staff will provide dates for upcoming Teen Court nights for the next 90 days when you check out after your hearing. You can also check the Teen Court calendar for any schedule changes. It is your responsibility to check your schedule and plan to return for one of those Teen Court nights.


Jury Duty Requirements

  • Select one date from the list given to you on your court night that you would like to serve your jury terms. 
  • MUST CALL ahead of time to sign up for jury duty.  
  • The jury dates will close when filled so DO NOT wait until the last minute to call.
