In 1996, Delegate Fleischauer was a co-sponsor of the first Teen Court bill, HB 4716. Teen Court is a part of a national effort to reduce recidivism among students accused of lower level disciplinary offenses by using local programs which put on a peer trial using peer judging. She later sponsored legislation that helped formalized teen court procedures and devised a revenue source for county teen court programs. For example, she was a sponsor of HB 4561, which passed in its Senate form as SB 725 1998, and was the lead sponsor of HB 4631, which passed in 2000 in its Senate version, SB 388.
