The Juvenile Division of the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office handles cases running the gamut from unruliness to major felony offenses involving bind-over cases for trial in adult court.

In some cases, child endangering offenses with adult defendants can also be tried in Juvenile Court. For the most part there are few jury trials in Juvenile Court, with most proceedings heard before a magistrate or one of the two Juvenile Court Judges. Juvenile Court is also a very busy venue, processing in excess of 28,000 criminal and traffic cases in 2006.
