When a juvenile is charged with a crime there is a juvenile delinquency court hearing. This court is specifically for felonies and misdemeanors committed by minors.
Juvenile delinquency court is often referred to as 602 proceedings. There are prosecutors and defense attorneys but there are no juries.
Instead of finding a juvenile innocent or guilty, if the judge determines that the juvenile committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt, then he/she will “sustain the petition” filed by the district attorney.
