Juvenile Traffic Court

Juvenile Traffic Court hears and disposes of all cases wherein a minor, under the age of 18 years, is charged with a violation of the Vehicle Code not declared to be a felony, any violation of an ordinance of a city, county, or local agency relating to traffic, any violation of the Fish and Game Code not declared to be a felony and certain violations of the Harbors and Navigation Code, Streets and Highways Code, Public Utilities Code, Penal Code, Business and Professions Code, Public Resources Code and any infraction.

The Traffic Hearing Officer, in lieu of imposing a fine for the referred violation, has the option of allowing the minor to select and attend a Court sanctioned educational or preventive program. The successful completion of the selected program by the minor will result in a dismissal of the Court referral.

Juvenile Drug Court

Is a grant-funded program consisting of two Superior Court Judges, Deputy Probation Officer, Deputy District Attorney, Defense Attorney, Licensed Mental Health Clinician, and Substance Abuse Treatment Provider.  A team approach aimed at providing juvenile participants with the tools necessary to lead a drug and crime-free lifestyle is used.  The program length is twelve months and consists of substance abuse treatment, intense supervision, drug testing, and Court reviews.

 The goal of the program is to divert minors whose primary issues are substance abuse from further involvement in the criminal justice system.  The program holds periodic graduation ceremonies to celebrate those who have successfully completed the program.
