What happens at the hearing?

You will either admit or deny the charge. Your case will be heard before a judge or magistrate, who, after hearing the case will either find you have committed the offense or dismiss the case. If the charge is substantiated, you will be responsible for court costs and the court may impose other dispositional measures. Your parent or guardian should accompany you to all hearings.
