Youth Offenders


Juveniles are persons who are under the age of 17. If you are a juvenile and charged with a traffic or criminal violation, State Law requires that you appear in Court with your parent or legal guardian.


Minors are persons who are 17 or older but younger than 21. Any person under the age of 21 charged with alcohol or tobacco violation must appear in Court.

Address Notification

Defendants and their parent or guardian are required by law to provide the Court, in writing, your current residence address. If your place of residence changes, you must notify the Court in writing of your new residence address.

Failure to keep the Court informed of your new residence may result in Failure to Appear and Failure to Notify charges against both you and your parent or guardian. The obligation of keeping the Court informed of your current residence address is required until the case is disposed of.
