    printer friendly version

    Question: If you have a warrant out for missing a court date when you are a juvenile, does it get wiped off your record once you turn 18?

    Answer: If the warrant is for failing to appear in juvenile court on a delinquency charge, the warrant should be quashed (cancelled) when you turn 18. The pending delinquency petition should also be dismissed, as juvenile court has lost jurisdiction over you.

    HOWEVER, the charge can be filed against you in adult court, and another warrant could be issued if you fail to appear for court.

    My fiance is going through kind of the same thing, he was caught shoplifting but missed his court date. This is not his first time either, he has been in trouble before, but he ran from it the last time, I know that he can incur some serious jail time, but i can't seem to find him ANYWHERE on the internet. no records of his arrests, nothing saying that he has a bench warrant NOTHING!!!! and it is all so frustrating, if anyone can help me i would greatly apreciate it...
