What Is Considered a Juvenile Offense in Florida?

Under Florida law, a juvenile offender is someone under the age of 18 who has been charged with a criminal offense. Many juveniles qualify for diversion programs and are not facing commitment programs. In most cases, to be eligible for a diversion program, the juvenile must be a first-time offender who did not commit a violent crime. The focus of these programs is rehabilitation and allows the juvenile offender to avoid detainment in a juvenile facility.

Some of the benefits of a diversion program for a juvenile offender are:

  • Counseling
  • Drug and alcohol treatment
  • Vocational training
