Week in Review: July 19-23

Another Friday in the books and another weekend on the way! Let's get your free time started with a recap of the week with OJD and some resources.

Tip of the Week

What Is the Process for Indictment?

Once a petition is filed against a juvenile, the prosecutor may submit the petition to a grand jury for indictment. Unlike in adult criminal court where the prosecutor submits a bill of information prior to charges being filed, in juvenile court the grand jury process starts after the formal charging process (petition filed) begins. If an indictment is handed down against the juvenile and the juvenile is given notice, the juvenile court must transfer the case to superior court.
