Adult court cases
The Bruno Law team has extensive experience representing juveniles who have been charged with a crime, ranging from minor traffic matters to serious felonies. Representing juveniles in criminal cases is in many ways different from representing adults. In most jurisdictions, including Minnesota, when juvenile cases go to trial, the child is not afforded a jury trial like in adult court. Rather, one judge is the finder of fact at a trial. The child is still considered innocent until proven guilty, the prosecutor only has to convince one person of guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, verses an entire jury. In juvenile cases, the case is charged in the county where the offense took place and that is where the case will be tried or a plea of guilty will be entered.

Youth in Adult Court
The juvenile justice system was created with the understanding that children are different from adults, mainly because they have more of a chance of reforming their behavior before they reach adulthood. In , Illinois was the first state to create a justice system for children that was separate than the one for adults. Though the juvenile justice systems of today are much different than they were years ago, they retain the same idea -- that the main goal is to educate the child and change their behavior, rather than punish them. Even though there is a separate court for those who are under the age of 18, not all juvenile offenders are tried as minors.
By Kathleen Michon , Attorney. Some juvenile cases get transferred to adult criminal court through a process called a "waiver"—when a judge waives the protections that juvenile court provides. Usually, juvenile cases that are subject to waiver involve more serious crimes, or minors who have been in trouble before. Although being tried in adult court gives a juvenile more constitutional protections, it has distinct disadvantages too—including the potential for a more severe sentence and the possibility of serving time in an adult correctional facility.
