Representing Minors’ Interests in Juvenile Delinquency Proceedings

When a minor commits an act that would be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony if committed by an adult, this is considered a “delinquent act” according to Utah Code § 78A-6-105. Cases of this kind are handled by the Juvenile Court, which has the authority to place minors under the supervision of the Court’s probation department, place the child in special treatment centers or in group homes, or even place the child in secure institutions. The Court may also order minors to pay fines, pay restitution, or carry out community service or other acts to repair damage or losses caused by their delinquent acts.

When accused of delinquent acts, minors deserve the same level of legal representation as adults would. Even though the juvenile justice system is geared toward rehabilitation, allegations of a delinquent act can carry harsh penalties and follow a minor through adulthood. Pearson Butler is committed to protecting the rights of minors across Utah who face juvenile criminal charges of any kind.
