Initial Juvenile Delinquent (JD) Petitions Filed and Disposed by County

Family Courts handle cases involving youth who are 12-17 and have a juvenile delinquency (JD) petition filed after a referral from a presentment agency: either the New York City Corporation Counsel’s Office or a County Attorney’s Office in the counties outside of New York City. These cases include those involving 16- and 17-year-olds charged with felonies (adolescent offenders) and 13-, 14-, and 15-year olds charged with certain serious felonies (juvenile offenders) that were removed from Youth Part of Criminal Court to Family Court.

See data notes for definitions and additional information on JD petitions filed and disposed.
