Municipal Court has jurisdiction over all juveniles (ages 10 - 16) charged with Class C misdemeanor offenses, including traffic violations, except public intoxication. All juveniles are required to appear in open court for all proceedings in their cases. The parent(s) of any juvenile charged in municipal court is required to be present in court with his or her child.
Juveniles who fail to appear or complete their sentence will be reported to the Department of Public Safety. The Department of Public Safety may suspend a juvenile's drivers license or deny the right to obtain a drivers license.
