How Juvenile Courts Handle Assault Charges in AZ
First, the court will determine whether or not your child is a delinquent, meaning that he or she would be charged with the crime if older or close to the age of 18.
The court will then consider several factors, including past offenses, to decide what the appropriate punishment will be. Your child may be subject to custodial or noncustodial dispositions.
The following are the possible penalties for a juvenile convicted of simple assault:
- Parental supervision
- Community service
- Juvenile detention
Most dispositions imposed on juvenile offenders convicted of assault are geared toward rehabilitation. If a juvenile is a repeat offender, the sentencing becomes stiffer.
