Juvenile Court

The Johnson City Juvenile Court, presided over by Judge Sharon M. Green, conducts judicial proceedings involving children and families who are referred to the court for reasons of abuse, dependency and neglect, delinquency, truancy and unruly behaviors, parentage, custody, visitation, and child support. The court seeks to protect the safety of children, protect the public safety, hold juvenile offenders accountable, and coordinate treatment and rehabilitative services tailored to the needs of children and their families.
Traffic citations: A youth and a parent must appear at the Juvenile Court on the date/time printed on the front of the citation. Some first offenders are eligible to attend a defensive driving class or seat belt safety class without appearing in court before the judge. The youth’s parent may call the Juvenile Court before the date printed on the front of the citation for information to determine eligibility.
