About Juvenile Justice Centers

What is the definition of a Juvenile?

Most states define Juvenile as up to age 17. A small number of states use 15 or 16 years of age as the cutoff. Youthful offenders who meet the definition of Juvenile may be referred to the Juvenile Justice System instead of the normal criminal justice system.

Can children have legal representation in Juvenile Court?

Yes, youth should have legal representation. Moreover, all children that have been detained are entitled to have representation from a public defender for a detention hearing.

What are the parental responsibilities while a Juvenile is on probation or supervision?

Parents should consider attending any court proceedings with their children, maintaining contact with the probation officer, and cooperating with school officials in keeping their child on track academically. Other roles of parents include arranging for their child's transportation to counseling, community service, or other obligations, and ensuring their child completes court-ordered goals and sanctions within the established timeframes.
