Partnership works to keep children from crime.
Marianne Clyde, a Warrenton-based therapist, and Elaine Lassiter, the director of the county’s department of juvenile courts, have partnered to create a therapy program for at-risk youth.
First, Lassiter and her team determine if children in the court system present a low, moderate or high risk of committing crimes.
“The court system should be focusing on the moderate- or high-risk kids,” Lassiter said.
But for the younger ones or those without a criminal history, she wants to give them a chance to learn before they end up in front of a judge again.
