Welcome to the Otsego County Youth Court website. Youth Court is an alternative to Family Court in which adolescents may choose to be represented, prosecuted and judged by their peers. The Otsego County Youth Board over-sees the program, and we accept referrals of cases from the County Probation Office. These cases are typically Juvenile Delinquency and PINS cases. Members of the court receive extensive training in the process of the legal system, and actively participate as defense attorneys, prosecutors and eventually as one of three justice positions. Members range from thirteen to nineteen years of age, coming from all walks of life. Some include former defendants that have made life changing decisions. Youth Court is primarily utilized for first time offenders under the age of 16. For more information about our program, please visit the Contact Us link located at the top of this page.
