If your child has been involved in a law violation, it is up to a law enforcement agency to investigate. If they find probable cause that a crime was committed, they will forward their police report to the Prosecuting Attorney. If the prosecutor chooses to officially charge your child, your child's case may be diverted to the probation department or your child may be petitioned to answer to the charge in court. If the case is diverted, you will be contacted by the probation department. If your child is called to court, download and review Idaho's juvenile justice handbook (PDF) to become more familiar with the juvenile court system.
