Common Baltimore Maryland Juvenile Crimes

Juveniles are very often accused of similar crimes that an adult is accused of. Some of these include:

  • Drunk Driving
  • Drugged Driving
  • Traffic Violations
  • Drug Charges
  • Shoplifting/Theft
  • Violent Crimes
  • Misdemeanors

Consequences Of Conviction

In Maryland, if a crime is serious enough it is possible for a juvenile to be tried as an adult. This may apply to a violent crime or perhaps a sex offense. In many cases a juvenile will be tried as a minor. Typical penalties can range from fines, court costs, community service to probation or serving time in a detention center. Penalties are directly related to the severity of the crime as well as the child’s criminal history. Often times a conviction as a juvenile can be wiped away via an expungement once the child reaches age 18.
