An arrest of a minor child has a major impact on the entire family. Sometimes people, children in particular, act without thinking of the consequence. But, the consequence for a juvenile committing a crime can be serious.
Although minors under the age of 18 are typically prosecuted in juvenile court, youths and teenagers may be tried as adults for certain serious crimes. If this is the case, the Commonwealth elects to indict the minor as a “Youthful Offender.” Minors in Massachusetts are tried unless the child files a written waiver and consent to be tried by the court without a jury.
