Juvenile Offender cases involve crimes allegedly committed by a minor.
A Child in Need of Care (CINC) case alleges that the child is in danger due to neglect or abuse, has run away from home or is not attending school. These cases are confidential and sealed by the Court.
Juvenile tobacco cases allege that a minor has possession of, or purchased cigarettes, electronic cigarettes or tobacco products. Juvenile tobacco infractions are procedurally handled like traffic citations and are not confidential.
Summonses are issued by first class mail or service by a process server in Juvenile Offender and Child in Need of Care cases. A juvenile tobacco citation will include the hearing date and time.
Child in Need of Care (CINC) records are closed to the public. The official file on juvenile offender cases is open to the public. The court may close the file when the youth is less than 14 years old and the judge determines that closing the file is in the best interest of the juvenile. Information about victims and alleged victims of sex offenses are not disclosed or open to the public under any circumstance.
