Juvenile Court

The Juvenile Court Division


The Juvenile Court Division of the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office prosecutes individuals under age 17 who are accused of committing a crime in DeKalb County. The Division's mission is to restore and redirect youth so they will become law abiding citizens. Juvenile Court's goal is to protect both a child's and the community's best interest. The Division also recommends appropriate services for children and families who are in crisis.

Juvenile Court hearings are held before a judge and not a jury.
