Juvenile Programs

Berkeley County Teen Court

Under an attorney serving as Judge, teens are tried and prosecuted by their peers.  The Court's mission is to assist juvenile offenders in assuming responsibility for their criminal behavior, to hold them accountable for their actions, and to teach them to make better decisions in the future while treating them with respect; to involve the community through volunteer programs and community service opportunities; and to promote better communications between youth, parents, schools, law enforcement agencies and the community.

 Berkeley County Juvenile Drug Court

The West Virginia Juvenile Drug Court Program is a cooperative effort of the juvenile justice, social service, law enforcement, and education systems in the state.  This program seeks to divert non-violent juvenile offenders exhibiting alcohol or substance abuse behavior from the traditional court process to an intensive, individualized treatment process. The goal is to reduce future court involvement for these youth.
