Once a case proceeds to juvenile court, a jurisdictional hearing is held in which the juvenile admits to or denies the allegations.
If the juvenile admits to the allegations, the juvenile is sentenced by the juvenile court.
If the juvenile denies the allegations, and the case is not resolved at a pre-heating conference, then an adjudication hearing is held.
At an adjudication hearing, the district attorney presents the evidence to a juvenile court judge. At this hearing, the juvenile is guaranteed the rights of due process and privilege against self-incrimination.
