We talk to teens involved with Rochester Teen Court. The program is in its 21st year and gives nonviolent teen offenders alternative sentencing in order to keep them out of the criminal justice system. Teen jurors recommend that sentencing for their peers.

Our guests discuss the program, youth incarceration, Raise the Age, restorative justice, and more.
