13-year-old Pennsylvania boy accused of crime spree

When a teenager is charged with a crime, it can be a particularly alarming situation for the accused and their family. Recently, a 13-year-old Pennsylvania boy was charged on several counts for a crime spree he allegedly went on in search of illegal drugs. The young teenager was already facing allegations for theft of his grandmother's vehicle when he met up with a couple of friends to search for another vehicle.

Students facing drug possession charges over pot brownies

Philadelphians will be interested to hear about a situation that has two high school students facing drug possession charges after they allegedly decided to bake pot brownies and bring them to their high school to distribute to their classmates. What two students may have thought of as a harmless prank may have long-term consequences for both. While this may sound like something out of a movie, these events unfolded in real life and not upon the silver screen. This situation is an important reminder of how the decisions teenagers make may end up being much more serious than they may believe at the time.

Being charged with a crime as a child can have lasting repercussions and long-term consequences that follow an individual into adulthood. Most cases involving juveniles, including cases of drug possession, shoplifting or underage drinking, are handled in the juvenile court system. However, when violent crimes or sex crimes are committed, the courts sometimes have the option to charge juveniles as adults.
