Juvenile Delinquency


When children commit crimes in Binghamton, Ithaca, Elmira, or anywhere else in the Southern Tier, the judicial system will treat such juvenile delinquency differently than similar offenses committed by adults. Some key differences between the legal processing of juvenile and adult offenders include:

  • Juvenile court jurisdiction is limited to children who commit offenses while under 15 years old;
  • No jury trials for juvenile offenders;
  • Detention of the juvenile offender cannot be avoided, even if bail is posted;
  • Juvenile offender records are confidential;
  • The records of youthful offenders can be expunged when they turn 21 years old; and
  • Juvenile delinquency proceedings are closed to the media and public.
