The impact of a child's involvement with the justice system can be far greater than a sentence imposed by a court. Numerous federal, state, and local laws impose additional consequences on children adjudicated delinquent or convicted in an adult court, many of which remain in effect far beyond any judicially-imposed sentence. Unlike a sentence, however, those additional consequences are frequently unknown to attorneys, judges, and the children whose lives they profoundly affect. This publication attempts to document the true impact of a juvenile adjudication, or a conviction of a child as an adult, in Colorado.
