Juvenile cases result when a person under the age of 17 is charged with a crime. These criminal cases are handled in the Family Law Division of the Circuit Court because juveniles are treated very differently from adult offenders. Certain cases do arise however where a juvenile defendant will be tried as an adult, primarily in more serious cases such as murder or rape.
