June 25, 2015
The Maryland Administrative Office of the Courts has released "Multijurisdictional Teen Court Evaluation: A Comparative Evaluation of Three Teen Court Models." This report presents the results of a study of three geographically diverse teen courts in Maryland. The study, funded by the State Justice Institute, reports that youth in each jurisdiction who completed a teen court program had fewer instances of recidivism than youth who did not complete the program.
