Juvenile Crime | Juvenile Delinquency

Quite often the first time a parent realizes that their son or daughter has been charged with a juvenile crime is that infamous phone call from the police or a knock at the door to inform them that their loved one has been arrested or accused of a crime.

As a parent, it's very disappointing and heartbreaking to discover that your child has been charged with a juvenile crime. For some, it's a relief. It's viewed as ​an opportunity to help a child change his or her ways before it's too late.​

A child that is charged with a crime can enter into a bureaucratic and legal maze​ of counselors, juvenile facilities, prosecutors and judges. In Wisconsin & Minnesota, a juvenile is a minor between the ages of 10 and 17, and the Wisconsin& Minnesota juvenile system is separate from the criminal system and move more quickly than the criminal system. Wisconsin & Minnesota Juvenile Law treats juvenile offenders differently in the regard that the system attempts ​to rehabilitate offenders rather than punish them.

However, if a juvenile commits a serious crime, he or she can be tried as an adult. A Minnesota & Wisconsin juvenile court will hear the charges and can dismiss the case or hand down a sentence of long-term incarceration in a juvenile correctional facility. For felony offenses, a child the age of 14 or older can be certified to stand trial in adult criminal courts. These matters occur when a juvenile is charged with a serious felony such as assault, murder,or crimes committed with a deadly weapon.

The following types of behavior often subjects juveniles in Wisconsin & Minnesota to juvenile court jurisdiction:

Major Felonies
Assault / Battery
Certification for prosecution as an adult
Drug use
Possession / Distribution of Drugs
Gang-related activities
Sexual misconduct
Sexual Assault
Underage drinking

Juvenile Crime Isn't the End of Your Child's Future
