A final hearing for two Teen Court peer judges

On August 26, 2020 Alyssa Kosidowski (Alma) and Ian Schneider (Durand), both 2020 high school graduates, participated in their last teen court hearings as panelists. Morgan Moline (Pepin) also served as a panelist for the Buffalo/Pepin County Teen Court hearing. The purpose of teen court is to provide an alternative for first-time youth offenders ages 10-16 to work to learn from their mistake based on sanctions provided by their peers within a restorative justice model. Annie Lisowski and Marie Ritscher, Teen Court Co-Coordinators, provided technical support for the virtual hearing and look forward to upcoming mock trials where college freshman and high school seniors will provide additional online training for the peer judge panelists who were new to Teen Court back in April.
