Welcome to Jefferson-Lincoln Circuit Court, 6th Division, Juvenile

Our courtroom and offices are in the Jack Jones Jefferson County Juvenile Justice Center, 301 East Second Ave., Pine Bluff AR.

The 6th Division Court hears all of the juvenile and juvenile related cases filed in Jefferson and Lincoln Counties. Our rules and procedures meet the legally mandated requirements of youthful defendants.

Our programs address the special needs and problems experienced by these defendants to help them become productive members of our communities. The court encourages parental participation in these programs.

Since the court is the first exposure to the American legal system experienced by many young people, we are particularly concerned that the court be fair and even handed in balancing the interests of the people, defendants, counsel and all others having business before the court. According to Judge Earnest E. Brown, Jr., presiding Judge of the Court, " ... that’s what is expected of our courts and in this court, that’s what you will get."

We hope you find our site useful in understanding what we do and how we do our jobs. If you have questions or comments, please let us know.
