Pupil´s committee (teen court)

This project focuses on young people (male/female) aged between 14 and 17 who were charged in a case of light or middle delinquency. The participants must have confessed fully.

In the pupil’s committee three pupils discuss the offence with the accused and try to find a proper measure or sanction for him or her. The measure or sanction should consider the skills of the particular young person. As soon as the service has been rendered the public prosecutor arrests judgment.

For every session the members of the committee are selected anew, according to age, schooling form, and sex of the accused.

For this project about thirty pupils from different schools are trained by BRÜCKE.
