Santiam Peer Court

Santiam Youth Peer Court is a program operated by the Stayton Friends of the Family.  Youth Peer Court is for those juveniles who have committed misdemeanor crimes and violations are judged by a court system of their peers.  The judges, clerks, bailiffs, and jury members are volunteers between the ages of 12-20 years of age.  The defendants have admitted guilt and are standing trial to be sentenced by their peers.  

 

The success of peer court is a group effort by the volunteers, Coordinator,  Stayton Police Department, and support of the Community.  The Community benefits from the program's success since youth from both sides of the law are being educated about the legal system.
