Juvenile Consequences Partnership Program

JCP is a partnership of the Houston Bar Association, the Harris County Probation Department, the Harris County District Attorney’s Office and the Houston Police Department. The program provides education about the juvenile justice system to youth in the Second Chance Program. The JCP program is held monthly at the United Way of Greater Houston building by invite only. Each partner organization speaks for 15 minutes on their role in the juvenile justice system. The goal of the program is to give youth a second chance by keeping them out of the system, through an increased understanding of the juvenile justice system and its consequences.


These are partners and speakers for the January program: HBA JCP Co-chair Dennis Carter, Officer Mark Boone of HPD, peer speaker Jake Ortiz, and Darren O'Neal, Harris County Juvenile Probation Dept., (not pictured is John Jordan of the Harris County District Attorney's Office)


Participating youth are referred to the HBA’s juvenile record sealing program. For more information on getting your juvenile record sealed, click here.
