Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator and Caddo District Judge Scott Crichton are hosting a special program for teens and their parents designed to illustrate the serious legal consequences of a teen-ager’s criminal behavior.

The program, presented free of charge, for teens 13 and above, will be given by Crichton at 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 9, in the Caddo Correctional Center Media Room located at 1101 Forum Drive. Pre-registration is required.

The first part of the program will be a 75 minute dynamic PowerPoint program titled “Don’t Let This Be You.” This presentation covers legal concepts and consequences of criminal behavior that all teenagers should know.

There will be specific focus on the law regarding possession of drugs and “spin-off” crimes related to drug addiction, and the law regarding teenage sex and its legal consequences, which may include paternity and child support, and much more.

There will also be numerous examples of local cases, now adjudicated and final, which evidence the very real and serious consequences of criminal behavior.

The second part of the program will include a tour of the housing units at Caddo Correctional Center, where teens and their parents will see, and hear, from inmates.

To register, call Andrea Samuel at the Sheriff's Training Academy at 681-0735.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 03:24 AM.
