A youth court is a special type of Magistrates’ court for people aged between 10 and 17. Young people who commit offences like theft, burglary, anti-social behavior or drugs-related offences are taken to a youth court rather than the adult Magistrates’ court. It has either 3 specially trained magistrates or a district judge. There isn’t a jury in a youth court.
