Juvenile Criminal Violation

When a juvenile commits a crime, the criminal justice system subjects the juvenile to an entirely different process than applies to adults. Because an adjudication (the juvenile equivalent of a conviction) can follow a juvenile for the remainder of his or her life, special and extreme precautions must be taken. An adjudication can also have implications in the juvenile’s pursuit of dreams and desires in the future.
