Using Non Judicial Adjustments for juvenile misconduct is the way to go if offered by a Utah Juvenile court.
There are several ways the government deals with juvenile misconduct. First, they try to do non judicial adjustment. Second they can charge the juvenile in Juvenile Court. Third, they can try the juvenile as an adult because the alleged crime is so heinous and serious.
Here are some of the requirements for using Non Judicial Adjustments for Utah juveniles accused of committing crimes.
(A) has no more than two prior adjudications; and
(B) has no more than three prior unsuccessful non judicial adjustment attempts.
If you fail to comply with the terms of the Utah Non Judicial Adjustment, the county juvenile prosecutor can petition the Juvenile Court for a formal petition for delinquency and the entire proceedings start again.
