Juvenile Crimes in Texas

In Texas, juvenile offenses are often referred to as delinquent conduct. Minors can be arrested for some of the following reasons:

  • Traffic violations
  • Drug charges
  • Weapons charges
  • Alcohol-related crimes
  • Truancy
  • Curfew violations
  • Theft

Penalties for Juvenile Crimes

One of the most common juvenile crimes in Texas is an alcohol-related crime. If a minor is found in possession of alcohol, they could face the following penalties, driver’s license suspension, fines up to $500, community service hours and mandatory alcohol awareness program attendance.

The Texas juvenile court system operates on a basis of not incarcerating every individual, but rather evaluating them, getting them the help that they need, and releasing them under supervised care into the community with the tools that they need to become productive members of society.

Even with the care that is taken to assess juvenile offenders, parents and children alike know that an arrest can be frightening. In some unfortunate circumstances, state prosecutors will try to get a juvenile offense elevated to be tried in an adult court to "make an example" out of the child.
