Understanding the Juvenile Justice System

Juvenile courts have a different process of intake, trials, and sentencing than adult courts. The Colorado juvenile justice system can be intimidating and you and your child may have questions regarding the process, which is why it is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side.

After an arrest, the child's parents will be notified and one of two things may happen:

  • If the crime did not involve a weapon or use of force: The child may be released, after which the parent and child will need to file a formal case with the district attorney and begin the preliminary investigation.
  • If a weapon was involved in the crime: The child will be placed into custody and may be placed in a secure facility or a detention facility while awaiting a trial.

Each case will involve a pre-trial process where a plea can be entered and investigative findings will be presented. After the pre-trial, a formal hearing will be scheduled where convictions and sentencing will take place. Depending on the crime, detention time, fines, restitution, probation, or community service may be required.
