Juvenile crimes adjudication

Frequently juvenile crimes end up turning into adjudications. Juvenile crimes are brought by the prosecution against criminal defendants who are considered to be juveniles. Under Pennsylvania law, a juvenile is an individual who is under 18 years of age when he has committed a crime. Most juveniles are charged by the district attorney's office. The crimes that the accused is charged with are explained by the Juvenile probation officer at an informal intake. informal intake After this, the accused has to decide whether or not he wants to challenge the charges and ask for a formal (a bench hearing before a court of common pleas judge or master) or agree to be adjudicated delinquent of the crimes. An adjudication is slang for when someone is found to adjudicated delinquent of a crime. An adjudication is essentially the same as an adult being found guilty of a crime in adult court. The differences are that a juvenile has more options to get his record expunged than that of an adult.

What are the penalties when an accused agrees to an adjudication for juvenile crimes? There are several in the Pennsylvania juvenile system. The most lenient is probation-which is supervision by a juvenile probation officer over the defendant for typically a year. The length of probation is frequently determined by how well the defendant performs on supervision.  juvenile sex offensesThe next type is electronic home monitoring where a juvenile's movement is monitored and he is required to stay at home unless he is told otherwise by his probation officer. The final type of punishment is placement where a juvenile is sent away and placed at a correction facility that specializes in assisting juveniles. Regardless of your type of case, it is a good idea to retain the services of an experienced Chester County Juvenile Crimes attorney.
