When juveniles are charged with an offense, legally, the offense falls under one of two categories. First, there is delinquent conduct. Second, is conduct indicating a need for supervision (CINS).
If your child is being held by the authorities your child is NOT in jail. Your child is being held in a juvenile detention facility. You need a Denton Juvenile Defense Lawyer to help secure your child's release.
