The Teen Court Program provides a voluntary alternative to the "sentencing arm," of Municipal Court. To be eligible, participants must: be between the ages of 14 and 18, currently enrolled in a middle or high school, have received a citation in the City of Coppell for a Class C misdemeanor offense (not related to Alcohol or Tobacco), enter a plea of guilty or nolo contendere and pay an administrative fee, to request permission of the court to go before a jury of their peers to receive their "sentence." The verdicts rendered in Teen Court include a specific number of community service hours and at least one jury term, in lieu of paying the fine and having the offense go on their record. If the requirements are completed within ninety days the case will be dismissed and no fine will be collected (although payment of administrative fees are required), and the offense does not become a part of the youth's record. This program provides an educational opportunity through which youths may take responsibility for their own actions while receiving a second chance.
