What are some of the juvenile's rights?
A juvenile delinquent has the right to an attorney. The court may appoint an attorney to represent the juvenile if the juvenile's family cannot afford an attorney. In addition, the court may require the juvenile's parents to reimburse the court for attorney fees or other costs.

Juveniles who are held in custody are usually placed in a separate juvenile detention center. If the juvenile is held in an adult jail, he or she must be kept separate from adult prisoners. Juveniles have the right to a jury trial.
