Don't lose control of the rest of your life. Contact our team of Indianapolis criminal defense attorneys for the help you need.
Common Types of Juvenile Offenses
We all make mistakes, especially when we are young and lack the life experience and judgment that comes with age. This is why the main goal of the juvenile judicial system is not necessarily to punish juveniles, but to help them rehabilitate so that they don't commit subsequent offenses.
Some of the most common kinds of juvenile offenses include:
- Possession or consumption of alcohol
- Possession or consumption of drugs
- Skipping school
Juvenile offenses are commonly punished with driver's license suspension, fines, mandatory counseling, and in some cases, detention in a juvenile facility. Depending on the severity and nature of the crime, a juvenile case may also be turned over to the adult judicial system, where the minor may be subject to harsher penalties.
