Tuesday, January 15, 2013. Teens are inducted into the Clinton County Youth Court. All 16 who participated in an 11-hour training over winter break passed the bar exam with an average score of 91 percent and have volunteered to make a one-year commitment. The program provides an opportunity for teens ages 13 to 18 to serve as members of a court — including in the role of judge, prosecutor, defender and jury — for young people who have committed low-level offenses. Typical cases heard by the Youth Court include petit larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal mischief, according to Clinton County District Attorney Andrew Wiley, who attended Monday’s induction.
