Understanding Juvenile Offenses

We know that being charged with Juvenile Offense is a stressful and horrifying experience. It is not uncommon for law enforcement to make mistakes in this area of law.

Juvenile offenses involve criminal cases with minors who are being tried in juvenile court for their offenses. A person who is 16 or under (17 for misdemeanors) can be tried in juvenile court for most crimes. Some cases allow the prosecution to certify juveniles as adults even when they are under the age of 18 and in certain cases the prosecution can attempt to extend the jurisdiction over children beyond their 18th birthday. Juvenile cases can carry incarceration despite the fact that adjudication in juvenile court is not the same as being convicted of a felony in adult court. This is because in most cases, records are sealed to prospective employers, colleges and the general public. For this reason and others, all juvenile defendants charged with a crime are required by law to be represented by an attorney.

There are also regulations that set the juvenile justice system very apart from the adult criminal justice system. For example, when there is domestic neglect or abuse involved with the crime committed by the juvenile, the case may also involve the regulations of the Social Services Department. This is why it is paramount in these cases to retain an attorney who specializes in the juvenile justice system and family cases.
