First Offender


 

What is the First Offender Diversion Program?
First Offender Diversion Program helps divert first-time offenders from further involvement with the juvenile justice system.
How does the program work?
Youth are referred for an assessment with a YST first offender counselor through the Juvenile Bureau of the District Court, and the Municipal Courts of Bixby, Broken Arrow and Owasso.

The counselor may refer youth to one or more of the following:
  • Misdemeanant Alternative Program -teaches youth and their parents new skills to encourage positive behavior
  • Tulsa Youth Court -youth can have their case heard before a jury of their peers
  • Family Counseling
  • Substance Abuse Counseling
  • Community Service
  • ROPES Course - adventure-based counseling

YST first offender counselors may also refer youth to other agencies and services, depending on their individual needs.
