A juvenile crime is a crime that is committed by a minor who is under the age of 18 and is generally charged in juvenile court. There are, however, some cases where the juvenile will be charged as an adult in an adult court depending on the severity of the crime for which they are charged. In these cases, the juvenile court has no jurisdiction over the case. Crimes that can be committed by a juvenile and tried in juvenile court may include assault, various property crimes and traffic tickets.
If you or your loved one has been charged with a juvenile crime then you could face serious penalties for conviction depending on the crime you are charged with and the court in which the crime will be tried.
