The Juvenile court is a division of the superior court. One of the cases involved in this division court is:

Juvenile Delinquency:
These cases involve children who have committed law violations that, if committed by an adult, would be considered crimes.

The purpose of the Delinquency court is: to protect, give guidance, and to punish children who commit delinquent acts, and to protect the community. If a child becomes a ward of the court as a juvenile delinquent, the court will make orders for the parent and child, so that the community will be protected.

As a ward of the Delinquency court:

  • A child may be allowed to reside in the family home under court supervision; or
  • A child may be placed outside of the family home in an unlocked or locked facility, depending upon the child's age, seriousness of the offense, and the child's history of delinquency.

Fresno Superior Court provides interpreting services to all trial court proceedings in criminal, traffic, and juvenile delinquency proceedings. For more information, click on the FAQ button on this page.
