Understanding how juveniles are charged with crimes

The definition of a juvenile varies from state to state, but in Texas, it is defined as a person who is between the ages of 10 and 17 when they committed the act that they are accused of. If they are considered a juvenile, they may also have committed an act that would be considered a criminal offense if executed by an adult.

Many factors can come into the picture when you are facing legal charges. Sometimes, cases in different court systems overlap. This can be difficult to handle, so you have to be prepared. Sometimes, there can be a criminal complaint for domestic violence and a family law case, involving a divorce or child custody, for example.
