Juvenile crimes are treated quite differently than adult crimes. After a minor has been taken into custody by law enforcement, often, he or she is released back to his or her parents while filing formal charges. Otherwise, they are taken to a juvenile detention center to await paperwork on official court proceedings.
Most juvenile courts prefer rehabilitation of juvenile offenders rather than formal punishment for misdemeanors or felonies. Nevertheless, minors can be given harsh punishments or tried as adults for severe crimes.
