Many times the reporting officer is going off of incomplete information when they write the citation. It is important that you get an attorney to represent you that can conduct their own investigation into the situation.

Q: A 15 yr old juvenile steals a car in the state of Georgia, in Gwinnett county.

What happens to the juvenile if they have no criminal record before the incident regarding the car. They have no history with law enforcement making this their first offense. Also what’s best/worst case for the juvenile when they’re given their consequence by the judge in juvenile court.

Titus Thomas Nichols
Titus Thomas Nichols answered on May 30, 2018

This is all dependant upon what charges are brought by the Orosecution. Juvenile Court is different because the primary goal is to rehabilitate the child, not so much punish.

The best course of conduct is to obtain an experienced attorney.
