96.03% of referrals to Teen Court in 2014/2015 were made by law enforcement including school resource officers.
In order to be considered for Teen Court a child must plead guilty even if he or she is not guilty.
Children as young as 9 years old are forced into this program.
Our local Teen Court is managed by the non profit, One Step Further.
One Step Further is funded by the City of Greensboro, Guilford County and the State of North Carolina as a non profit arm of our growing private prison industry.
Greensboro City Councilwoman Yvonne Johnson is the founder and long time director of One Step Further.
Yvonne Johnson profits from sending your children to jail.
And if that's not enough I encourage you to read The Yvonne and Walter Johnson Saga filled with documents about the many people the Johnsons knowingly robbed and never repaid.
