Juvenile Offenses in Georgia
Certain offenses are particular to minors, such as truancy violations, underage drinking, and breaking a curfew. As a juvenile in Georgia, you can lose your license for an underage DUI, for purchasing or attempting to purchase alcoholic beverages, for using a fake ID to attempt to purchase alcohol, or as a minor in possession of alcohol. Curfew law prohibits minors from being out after midnight on weekends and 11 p.m. on weeknights. If you are found in violation of this, you may be faced with legal penalties. Other common juvenile crimes include theft crimes, vandalism, criminal trespass, and gang related activities.
Juvenile cases are handled in juvenile courts with their own set of judges and rules.
