Teen Court Teenager - Prosecutor
The teen prosecutor’s role is to represent the public interest by requesting a sentence that is strict but fair, to maintain respect for the judicial system.
Teens attorneys must be responsible, flexible, and willing to come to court prepared to present their case. Case paperwork must be handled in a confidential manner. Teen attorneys develop opening and closing statements and questions for direct and cross-examination, as well as for any witnesses that may testify.
To become a teen attorney you must have been a juror for at least 3 jury terms and must attend a Teen Court Attorney Training. A new and inexperienced teen attorney is assigned with an experienced teen attorney and will be "in training" for the first few cases and/or until the new teen attorney is comfortable.
