Juvenile Crimes FAQs

What help is there for juveniles who commit minor crimes?

The Adolescent Diversion Program, ADP, applies to people age 17 and younger, and it applies to any crimes that are deemed eligible. That means they will take some crimes that are very minor crimes, such as a kid who shoplifts a $5 lipstick from a store, but they will also take some robbery crimes if they are also deemed eligible.


There is also a diversion program for adults


These are cases that would be brought to court and it gives kids a second shot. If they complete a program and go through a psychological evaluation and pass, then they end up with a dismissal on their case. It is sealed so no one ever knows.


It is a second chance for people who are young and stupid at the time.
