Juvenile Court


Violation of law by juvenile children younger than the age of 17 is referred to the Juvenile Court. All children must be represented by an attorney. If the child's family cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed.

Basic Juvenile Court Procedures:

Detention: The court may order the child detained for a length of time at local facilities.

Adjudication Hearing: A hearing to determine whether or not the child committed the alleged conduct.

Disposition Hearing: Upon a true finding that the child committed the conduct, this hearing will determine what consequences the court will assess.

Probation: The child may be released under the supervision of the Juvenile Probation Office. The child will obey all supervision terms or face detention at a secure facility, a boot camp, or the Texas Youth Commission.
