The Juvenile Justice System

All states have separate courts that deal with juveniles accused of crime. The rules and procedures—and outcomes—in such courts are far different from those in criminal (or "adult") courts. This topic page houses several sub-pages that cover the ins and outs of juvenile justice. Topics include the court process, rights, kinds of crimes, records, and kids in adult court. And, at the bottom of this page is a set of articles that point readers to state-specific information on juvenile law.
