Neighbor Tip Leads to Juvenile Arrests
Over the weekend, Provo police arrested 3 juveniles in Provo for car burglary. On Saturday night, a woman saw three teens dressed in black getting into her neighbors vehicle. The woman called the police who arrived in time to catch one of the three boys as he was trying to run away. The other two boys were later arrested as well, and the three of them have been refereed to juvenile court for vehicle burglary and curfew violations. The Provo Police Department cites car burglaries as a problem in their community and say that cracking down on it is a top priority for them.
The juvenile criminal system is very different from the adult system because the State has different goals they want to achieve with juveniles. Although it could be said that the State tries to go easier on juveniles, that doesn’t change the fact that juvenile’s can be very detrimentally affected by juvenile proceedings. Not only could charges effect the juvenile’s future by showing up on their record, but they could also loose their drivers license as well as be required to serve time in detention or community service.
