ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a method to combat juvenile delinquency in Seattle, Washington. Under the plan, first offenders are tried before a court made up of fellow students. School authorities selected a jury of six, prosecutors, defense attorneys and judges from among outstanding students. If found guilty, the defendant is placed on probation. If the trial fails, the case is then turned over to the police.
