The benefit to going through the Peer Court processes is that upon successful completion of the program the original offence is removed from the offender’s record. If the charge is sent through the Juvenile Court it becomes part of their permanent record. The majority of the time the punishments handed down by the Juvenile Court are more severe than those handed down by the Peer Court. Punishments handed down from Peer Court usually consist of community service hours, study hours, written reports, letters of apology, Safe Teen Classes, etc.
Each case reviewed by Peer Court has been screened for both the offense and the offenders criminal history. Peer Court is overseen by detectives from the Logan City Police Department with the assistance of the Bear River Health Department
If you're between the ages of 14 and 18 and would like to be part of the Logan City Peer Court please contact the peer court detective at (435) 716-9361.
