Juvenile Case Stages

The following information will be beneficial to those searching for information about juvenile case stages:

The Juvenile Court system has an entirely different set of rules than that adult court system. The terminology is also different in that a “Crime” is called an “Act of Delinquency”. In addition “Pretrial Conferences” are called “Pre-adjudication Hearings”. The actual “Trial” is called “Adjudication Hearing”, and juveniles are not found to be “guilty”, they are found “delinquent”. Instead of a “Sentencing”, they have a “Disposition Hearing”. In reality, these juvenile terms mean almost exactly the same thing as they do in adult court. The following list on the right hand side of the site lists all of the case stages involved in the juvenile process in chronological order.
