How does juvenile court differ from adult court?

There are a number of differences between the juvenile delinquency system and adult court and there are also some similarities. The primary difference in juvenile court and adult court is the focus in juvenile court is more on rehabilitation than it is on punishment. That’s not to say that juveniles are not punished in some ways in juvenile court, but the focus is more on rehabilitating the juvenile, getting the juvenile on the right path so that they don’t end up being charged with any crimes once they become an adult.
