Newark Youth Court: "A Story of Hope"

Yesterday morning, the topic of New Jersey Public Television's “Due Process” program was the Center For Court Innovation's Newark Youth Court. The program features the work of the Youth Court which hears low level offenses and responds to youth with sanctions that restore the damage to the community and seek to positively influence the youth's trajectory. This alternative to traditional court procedures is described by Newark's Mayor, Corey Booker, as a "story of hope" in his speech at the Newark Youth Court's first graduation.
