Experience with the Juvenile Justice System in Virginia
The Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) serves young people under age 18 charged with a crime. The juvenile system may involve both Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts. Other agencies and facilities also play their parts as part of the juvenile justice system.
The juvenile justice system focuses more on rehabilitating delinquent youth over punishment. An example of this is sentencing a juvenile to a counseling program designed to help them make better life choices. Before sentencing, though, there is much juvenile procedure to follow.
