Juvenile Offenses.

In Kentucky, Juvenile Offenses are separated into two categories: public offenses and status offenses. A public offense occurs when a person under 18 violates a criminal statute. A status offense occurs when a person under 18 does something that is only illegal due to the person's age: truancy, runaway, beyond control, tobacco offenses.

The juvenile justice system is vastly different from the adult justice system in Kentucky. Court designated workers (CDWs) are responsible for processing juvenile complaints. Once a public offense or status offense reaches court, it is treated in a very different manner than an adult offense.

There is no substitute for experience. Wesley Browne has represented numerous juveniles over the course of many years in practice. Call today for your free consultation.
