An Appearance is Requiredjuvenile
The parent of any juvenile charged in municipal court is required to be present in court with his or her child. Failure of a parent or legal guardian to appear with a juvenile constitutes a separate misdemeanor offense by the parent, and juveniles who fail to appear in court may have an additional charge of failure to appear filed against them along with a denial of renewal of their driver's license.

The court will automatically mail a hearing notice to the parent or legal guardian which will include the date, time and location of where to appear. The notice will be mailed to the address the violator gave at the time of the stop. Juveniles do not need to request a court hearing. The hearing will always be on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 4:00 P.M. The 20 business day appearance is not required for juveniles. Included in the notice that will be mailed are a couple of forms required to be submitted at the time of the scheduled hearing.

Represented by an Attorney
Attorneys representing juveniles are required to be present at the Juvenile hearing along with the child and parent.
