Juvenile Crimes Placement and Detention

One of the worst outcomes that a criminal defendant can receive when charged with juvenile crimes is Placement and/or detention. Placement means that a juvenile is placed at a detention facility. Juvenile Sex Crimes This almost always occurs after a defendant is determined by the court to have committed a crime. Placement facilities typically specialize in dealing with certain issues such as drug dependency issues, mental health issues, anger issues etc. Detention occurs when a juvenile is detained in the juvenile detention facility until his guilty can be determined by a court of common pleas. Juvenile Crimes are crimes brought against individuals under the age of 18. If a criminal defendant does not plead guilty, he can still be detained prior to his criminal trial so long as he is charged with very serious crimes or had been in the juvenile system previously. Make sure to consult with experienced Chester County Juvenile attorneys if your son or daughter has been charged with a crime.

As stated above, convictions or adjudications for juvenile crimes can lead to Placement and detention. When individuals are charged with Juvenile Crimes they can be punished in the juvenile system if they are adjudicated delinquent (which is very similar to pleading guilty in the adult court system), of committing crimes.  Juvenile Consent DecreeThere are several factors that courts consider when deciding whether or not a defendant should be either placed in a facility or detained. Specifically, the court considers how serious the charges are, how the defendant is performing in society (i.e. school grades, listening to his parents at home etc.) and finally if the accused has any priors. If the defendant has priors and is not performing well in society, then there is a high likelihood that the accused will be detained. However, these determinations are left up to the specific judge or juvenile master.
