Even good kids make bad decisions.
Every kid gets in trouble at one point or another. For some kids, that trouble catches the attention of the police and State’s Attorney. Nothing is more unnerving to a parent.
The Illinois Juvenile court system is set up to deal with kids who would be in “real” court if they were not kids. Anything from an underage drinking ticket to narcotics and firearms offenses could tangle a child in the complicated web of juvenile court law. Legally speaking, there is no offense “too small” for juvenile court.
Unlike adult court, juvenile court can go on forever. What seemed to be a minor offense to start can keep a person under the watchful eye of a juvenile court judge until they are 21 years old. How many years do you want the case to drag on?
