Columbus Juvenile Crime Attorney

In the Columbus Ohio, people under the age of 18 at the time of a criminal offense are considered juveniles and are treated differently from adult offenders. A standardized criminal justice system deals with adults. However, with juvenile crime cases each state has its own juvenile justice system. Unlike the criminal justice system, which punishes perpetrators, the juvenile justice system seeks to rehabilitate.

Columbus’s juvenile justice system is a Home Rule system, which allows cities and counties throughout the state to function with a great deal of self-rule. Most juvenile justice services are provided by local government and vary from location to location.
