How Does Juvenile Court Differ From Adult Court?
Juvenile court differs from adult court in several respects. In juvenile court, you do not get a trial before a jury. The trial is before the judge alone. In juvenile court, if you are found to have committed an offense, you are committed as a delinquent. You are not given a criminal conviction for that particular crime. In juvenile court, juvenile records are for the most part confidential to everyone, so your case will not be able to be reviewed by a prospective employer in the future.
