What are the consequences of adjudication for a delinquent act?

If the child is adjudicated delinquent, the ways Georgia law authorizes the Court to dispose of the case include placing the juvenile on probation, incarceration for up to 60 days, or committing the child to the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a police stop and being arrested?
Show AnswerGhanouni Teen & Young Adult Defense Firm

Police may stop and question you, although you have the right to refuse to answer. While a stop detains you for a short time, you are not moved to a different location as with an arrest. In order for police to make an arrest, they must have “probable cause,” which means there must be a reasonable belief a crime was committed and that you were involved in the crime. If the police arrest you, they take you in to custody and you may not leave.
