Launching the Seattle Youth Traffic Court on February 8, 2012
On February 8, 2012, 28 Garfield High School students began their training to serve in the first-ever Seattle Youth Traffic Court. This constituted the formal start to the project formed with the Garfield High School, Seattle Municipal Court and the Seattle University School of Law. Law students assist high school students in their roles of judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, court staff, and jurors. The students decide on sentences for eligible defendants under 18 who have received civil traffic infractions within the city of Seattle. For more information, contact Magistrate Lisa Leone, firstname.lastname@example.org.
