How a Juvenile Case Starts
A Juvenile Case may start with one of three things: Arrest, Citation or Referral. If you are arrested you will be taken to a detention facility for kids. Or, the police may issue you a citation and call your parents or guardian. A referral may also be made to the Juvenile Services Department.
