If the juvenile denies committing the crime, the case will be set for a Trial. During the trial, the District Attorney is responsible for proving beyond reasonable doubt that the juvenile committed the criminal act. If the District Attorney proves that the juvenile committed the crime, the Judge will place the juvenile on probation based on the crimes committed and prior charges. If the District Attorney does not prove beyond a reasonable doubt, the charges will be dismissed, and the juvenile will be free from all court involvement. During the trial, the juvenile's attorney will have the opportunity to bring witnesses and a defense against the charges.
