Although most juvenile crimes are similar to those for adult offenders, the penalties and laws associated with juvenile crimes are substantially different. Two of the most significant differences are that juveniles are not entitled to a trial by jury and must be represented by an attorney. A juvenile offender is anyone between the ages of ten and seventeen. In most juvenile cases, it is possible to have the child receive an alternative disposition instead of placement in a state facility.
