Beginning October 1, 2013, Richland Hills Teen Court will be part of the Northeast Tarrant Teen Court, NETTC. NETTC serves the cities of North Richland Hills, Haltom City, Watauga and Richland Hills.
Teen Court is a voluntary program for middle and high school students (ages 12-18) who have received a citation. Offenders “pay” for their offense through community service and their involvement in the judicial system. Cases are heard by a teen jury. The jury decides how many community service hours the offender should receive based on pre-set guidelines. In addition, the offender must serve jury duties. If the offender successfully completes all of the Teen Court obligations as ordered, the citation will be dismissed resulting in no conviction.
If you received a citation in the City of Richland Hills and would like to participate in Teen Court, you must first appear before the Judge in the Richland Hills Municipal Court with a parent/guardian.
