When a minor is apprehended by the police for violating a statute, the juvenile criminal process begins. A juvenile criminal case can also start when a school official, parent or guardian refers a juvenile to the juvenile justice system. Usually, a court intake officer evaluates a case before deciding whether to refer it to a social service agency or to the court. Various consequences for the juvenile can arise in the nature of correction facility placement or alternative placement in a shelter, group home, or foster home. Juveniles cannot be bailed out. In cases of serious offenses, the matter can be referred to the local prosecuting office, after which the juvenile is charged, tried, and sentenced as an adult. Factors including the seriousness of the crime, social history, and level of remorse are all taken into consideration before deciding a juvenile criminal case.
