Benedict Restaurant Raises $230 for Teen Court

LA PLATA, Md. (Dec. 22, 2008)—The River’s Edge Restaurant in Benedict raised $230 for the Charles County Sheriff’s Office’s Teen Court program during a Dine to Donate fundraiser held Dec. 13.

“We owe a special thank-you to River’s Edge for offering to donate a portion of their profits to our Teen Court program, said Sheriff Rex Coffey. “The management, staff and diners who participated in Dine to Donate have contributed to a program that helps get young offenders back on the right track and offers educational volunteer opportunities to teenagers interested in participating in the criminal justice system.”

Teen Court is a voluntary juvenile justice diversion program offering first-time offenders, ages 12-17, the opportunity to accept accountability for their minor crimes without having to incur a permanent criminal record, according to the sheriff's office website. Teen Court allows juvenile respondents to be judged by a jury of their peers. The goal is to reduce the number of youthful offenders and educate youth in a realistic court environment.
