In Ohio, young people may be charged with juvenile delinquency for a variety of offenses. Although these cases deal with crimes, they are considered civil rather than criminal proceedings.
Most children and young people at some point break the law in one way or another. This could be a minor theft, a curfew violation, or underage consumption of alcohol.
Generally, the court system recognizes that children and teenagers will have errors in judgment and often lack the capacity to the recognize the consequences of their actions.
Because of this, the juvenile court system is focused primarily on behavioral modification and minimizing the young person’s contact with the court system.
