What is a Juvenile Crime?
The most common juvenile crimes include vandalism, shoplifting and other petty theft charges, underage drinking violations, joyriding in a car, or assault.
What are the consequences of Juvenile Crimes?
The judicial system usually tries to rehabilitate juvenile crime offenders, rather than punish them. For this reason, juvenile crime offenders may be sentenced to community service, educational courses, rehabilitative courses, fines, or probation. In some cases a juvenile offender may be charged and subsequently tried as an adult, typically in the case of more serious and/or violent crimes such as rape, assault with a deadly weapon, or murder.
What are some defenses to a Juvenile Crime charge?
Defense to juvenile crimes will depend on the crime and circumstances. The same defense to the crime may be used as would typically be used by adults.
