Talbot County Teen Court
Talbot County Teen Court was started in 1999. It is a voluntary diversion program run by teens for teens. Respondents must be between the ages of 11-18, first time offenders, Talbot County residents, and admit their involvement in the offense.
Cases are referred to Teen Court by local law enforcement agencies. Depending on the severity of the offense, Talbot County Teen Court employs minimum and maximum ranges of sanctions. Respondents all receive between 8-60 hours of community service, 1-6 jury duties, and 1-6 youth life coaching sessions. Respondents have 60 days to complete their sanctions. If the youth fails to complete the assigned sanctions, his case is referred to the Department of Juvenile Services, where a petition may be filed for formal action.
