The Municipal Court has jurisdiction over juveniles (16 years or
younger) charged with Class C misdemeanor offenses and traffic
offenses except public intoxication. All juveniles are required to
appear in open court for all proceedings on their cases. All persons
16 years of age or under must be accompanied by a parent or legal
guardian. In the event of an alcohol or tobacco related offense, all
persons 17 years of age or under must be accompanied by a parent or
Juveniles who fail to appear in court may have an additional charge of failure to appear filed against them. Juveniles who fail to appear or who fail to pay their fine will be reported to the Department of Public Safety and their driver's license will be suspended. If they do not have a driver's license, they will not be able to obtain one until they have disposed of their case.
