Consequences Of Conviction
If a crime is serious enough it is possible for a minor to be tried as an adult. This may apply to a violent crime or perhaps a sex offense. In many cases a juvenile will be tried as a minor. Typical penalties can range from fines, court costs, community service to probation or serving time in a detention center. Penalties are directly related to the severity of the crime as well as the child’s criminal history. Often times a conviction as a juvenile can be erased via an expungement once the child reaches age 18.
