At The Sherman Law Group, we take great pride in handling juvenile court cases. We have developed a depth of knowledge and an incredible resource base to help our clients with these important cases.

In Georgia, juveniles are defined as anyone under the age of 17. If convicted, juveniles are not considered criminals, but rather "delinquents." However, some serious crimes committed by children 13 or older can cause them be tried in adult criminal court rather than juvenile court. The main concern of the juvenile court system is to rehabilitate, so the individual can be placed on probation. The options for sentencing of juveniles vary more than the options for adults. Juvenile courts offer punishments not available to adults, such as curfews.

Three types of cases are heard in juvenile court:

  • Juvenile Delinquency: minors accused of an act that would be considered a crime he or she were older.
  • Juvenile dependency: minors who have been abused or neglected.
  • Status offenses: the juvenile has been accused of a violation that does not apply to adults. An example of this would be truancy cases or underage drinking.

According to statistics from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency, about half of juvenile arrests are made for theft, simple assault, drugs, disorderly conduct, and curfew violations. Robbery, rape, murder, and aggravated assault make up only about 3% of juvenile arrests every year.
