Court Unit

David Castleton, Manager  (503) 846-4561

Counselors in this unit and/or a deputy district attorney decide that a legal course of action may be warranted in a delinquent case. Counselors gather background information, supervise youth awaiting court hearings, and prepare reports for the Court. Recommendations are made to the court that will hold the youth accountable for behavior, address the needs of the victims and develop a plan or strategies that will aid the youth in reformation.

Please review the Courtroom Protocol before attending a court hearing at the Juvenile Department.
