Proudly advocating for the rights and protection of children
Juvenile Delinquency or Incorrigibilty
Juvenile prosecution cases are handled by a specific department of the state in order to protect the rights of children between ages 8 and 18. The goal of an Arizona court, when working with a case of juvenile delinquency or incorrigibility, is to provide measures that provide for both public safety and the rehabilitation of the child.
It is the responsibility of parents to provide for the needs of their child, both physically and emotionally. It is also the responsibility of parents to ensure proper control of a child with regards to public safety. If parents fail to meet their parental responsibilities, it is considered a felony, punishable by jail time and significant fines. However, if a child willfully refuses to obey the reasonable rules of a parent, and cannot be controlled, they can be deemed either “delinquent” or “incorrigible.” Incorrigible acts include truancy from school, running away, smoking, or not meeting curfew rules. Delinquent acts, on the other hand, are misdemeanors or felonies.
