Welcome to the Summit County Juvenile Court Web site. My name is Linda Tucci Teodosio and I am privileged to serve our community as Juvenile Court Judge. I believe the Juvenile Court should be more than a mechanism of punishment for youth offenders who enter the juvenile justice system. The Juvenile Court will hold these children responsible for their actions, but the court should also seek ways to introduce the proper programming and guidance for these children to turn their lives around and become productive members of society.

By networking with the wealth of social service agencies in Summit County and enhancing, expanding and creating programs within the court, we can provide our at-risk youths with useful alternatives.
