Is 102-mph speeding ticket OK for student traffic court? Opinions in Issaquah split

Clerk Emily Eastern, 18, reads a citation during Youth Court, hearing area high school students’ traffic tickets in the courtroom at City Hall South in Issaquah Monday May 22, 2017.  Each incident is reviewed by a judge, jury and clerk of fellow students. To be eligible for the program, students must attend Issaquah, Skyline or Liberty High Schools, and their ticket must be filed in Issaquah municipal court, and not involve negligent driving charge or a traffic accident. They can make a written request to have their citation reviewed in Youth Court.

Some teens in the Puget Sound region can arrange for traffic tickets to be diverted to student-run court and those infractions removed from their driving record. But should a teen driving 102 mph on Interstate 90 qualify for diversion?
