Common Juvenile Crimes
Juveniles are very often accused of similar crimes that an adult is accused of. Some of these include:
- Traffic Violations
- Drug Charges
- Violent Crimes
Consequences Of Conviction
If a crime is serious enough it is possible for a juvenile to be tried as an adult. This may apply to a violent crime or perhaps a sex offense. In many cases a juvenile will be tried as a minor. Typical penalties can range from fines, court costs, community service to probation or serving time in a detention center. Penalties are directly related to the severity of the crime as well as the child's criminal history. Often times a conviction as a juvenile can be wiped away once the child reaches age 18.
