THE JUVENILE COURT SYSTEM IN TEXAS
Most juvenile criminal defense cases are handled by the Texas Juvenile Justice Department (TJJD). This means that children under 17 years of age are held in separate detention centers than adults and are tried differently than adults. However, in cases of violent crimes that can be classified as a capital offense or first degree felony, a child could be tried as an adult. Convictions could therefore be very severe, especially for someone so young. Don't let your child suffer the trauma of a criminal conviction and face a damaged future as a result.
