Colin Rosetti Named to Southold Town Youth Court

Congratulations to Colin Rosetti for being selected to participate in the Southold Town Youth Court.  The Youth Court initiative involves students in grades 9-12. The students will be trained in all positions that a Courtroom would hold and hear actual cases of their peers referred by School, Police and Probation.

Cases referred will follow the principals of Restorative Justice to hopefully set this young person on a more productive path. The Jury of the respondents peer’s will decide on the appropriate amount of Community service hours as well as counseling if necessary and a written or public apology to victims of  the crime. Youth Court is not just for students interested in pursuing law or criminal justice, but for youth who want to play an active role in their community in  making a difference in a peer’s life.

Pictured below are Colin and other new members of the Youth Court.
