Juvenile Law FAQs
What happens when a juvenile is arrested?
When a juvenile is arrested, they are taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center in the jurisdiction where the arrest took place. There their parents or legal guardian are contacted. Depending on the nature of the charges, or the extent of the juvenile’s prior record, the juvenile may be transferred to the Juvenile Detention Center to await seeing a judge for a Detention Hearing, at which time the judge will decide whether the juvenile will remain at the Detention Center or released to their parents. If the juvenile is kept at the Detention Center, an attorney can file a request with the judge to have a hearing to reconsider whether the juvenile should be released or not. The Law Offices of David P. Hill have a lot of experience with all facets of juvenile charges, including assisting juveniles in getting released from Detention so that they can return home with their parents and to their own school.
