What Will Happen to my Child in Houston Juvenile Court? A Police Officer says my child is being charged with a crime.
At the same time, theJuvenile Probation Department begins their process of gathering information about your child and your family. The probation department is responsible for preparing a probation report for the court, the prosecutor and the defense attorney. A probation office usually will call you or your child to discuss his situation. The probation officer may call you early on in the case even before the petition is filed with the court.
