Twelve-year-old Keion Wilson is in trouble. He was suspended from school for fighting and is in court for that facing a misdemeanor charge that could follow him for a long time.
“This might be going on my record,” Wilson said. “I want to be a good athlete and I want to have a clean record.”
But the court Wilson is in is different. He’s in teen court, where other kids are the lawyers, prosecutors and the jury. Make no mistake: It’s still a court and punishment will be dealt out.
