HOW ARE JUVENILE CRIMES DIFFERENT?
Under CRS 19-1-103, a juvenile is considered to be any person under the age of eighteen. Juveniles can potentially be charged with delinquent acts. A delinquent act is considered to be a violation of any statute, order, or ordinance. There is a whole separate court process for juveniles, as the goal is rehabilitation, diversion, and/or treatment instead of punishment.
CAN A JUVENILE BE CHARGED AS AN ADULT?
There are instances where a juvenile could potentially be charged as an adult and have their court proceedings take place not in juvenile court, but in district court. Under CRS 19-2-517, the instances where a juvenile could be charged as an adult include but are not limited to:
- A juvenile who is sixteen years of age or older at the time of committing the offense;
- A juvenile who is alleged to have committed a class 1 or class 2 felony;
- A juvenile who is alleged to have committed a violent sexual assault;
- A juvenile who is alleged to have committed a violent felony.
If, after the preliminary hearing, the district court does not find probable cause for the offense to be in district court, then it will go back to juvenile court to be processed there. Aspects the district court judge could look at include but are not limited to:
- The seriousness of the offense, including if it was a violent crime;
- The danger the juvenile could have to the community;
- Whether the offense was against a person or property, with a crime against a person bearing more weight;
- Previous record and history of juvenile court proceedings;
- The likelihood of the juvenile’s rehabilitation;
- The current and past mental health status of the juvenile; and
- The impact of the crime on the victim
