Juvenile Court Process


Detention Hearing

This first hearing reviews the minor’s background and offense.


Jurisdictional Hearing

The Jurisdictional hearing notes admission or denial of guilt, and establishes if minor is in Butte County’s jurisdiction. If the minor is in the jurisdiction of another county, the case will be set for transfer to that county.


Dispositional Hearing

During the Dispositional hearing, the final findings and recommendations of the Probation Officer are presented. Any contentions will restart the court process.
