Municipal court has jurisdiction of persons between the ages of 12 – 16 charged with a municipal (non-traffic) ordinance violation. Appearance is mandatory with a parent or guardian present. Juveniles have the right to a closed (private) hearing but may waive this right. A money judgment may be entered against a juvenile found guilty of a non-traffic ordinance violation; however, the court may offer other options. If found guilty of an alcohol related offense, it is reported to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Failure to pay court-imposed forfeiture or to comply with a court stipulation may result in the suspension of your driver’s license for up to 2 years. The court may impose a juvenile’s forfeiture and/or restitution on the parent or guardian.
