A juvenile crime conviction can have devastating effects on young people and their families. Not only might a conviction in juvenile court result in a young persons loss of freedom during important formative years, it might also have other serious effects such as institutionalization, lack of socialization, and more. In the worst cases, a conviction in juvenile court could mark the inauguration into a life of criminality.

Crimes Tried in Juvenile Courts
Juvenile courts handle cases involving juvenile delinquency and crimes committed by minors, including but not limited to:
- Truancy, or skipping school
- Drug or alcohol violations
- Curfew violations
Consequences of a Juvenile Crime Conviction
In addition to potentially acclimatizing your child to criminal life, other consequences of a juvenile court conviction include:
- Juvenile detention
- Large fines
- Mandatory counseling or attendance at an alternative school
- Expulsion from school
In some cases, a juvenile offender can be tried as an adult and thus will be subject to adult penalties and punishments.
