Juvenile Arbitration

Arbitration is a meeting between the defendant, parent/guardian, and the victim with a JDP Case Manager to discuss the offense and to form a contract. At the end of Arbitration a contract will be signed to include all the sanctions the defendant will need to complete. If the sanctions are completed, the victim  compensated, if applicable, the defendant will avoid formal prosecution in juvenile court. Failure to comply with the required sanction will result in referral back to the Office of the State Attorney for prosecution.
