The Juvenile System & Penalties

In most states, the law treats juveniles differently than adults in most circumstances. As a matter of fact, courts usually prefer rehabilitation over punishment but can impose harsh penalties on juveniles involved in serious crimes or with prior criminal records. Age also influences the severity of punishment, with older delinquents often facing harsher penalties and possible transfer to adult court.

 

Penalties for juvenile crimes may include:

  • Incarceration
  • Fines
  • House arrest
  • Electronic monitoring
  • Probation
  • Mandatory school attendance
  • Mandatory curfew
  • Community service
  • Educational or counseling programs

 

The state may incarcerate juveniles in a state prison, group home, or juvenile facility if convicted of a crime. Circumstances can lead to their incarceration in a juvenile facility until they turn 18, followed by a transfer to an adult state prison. Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, our Seminole County criminal defense lawyers can provide passionate defense in court.
