Sanctions Hearings

If a juvenile fails to comply with a Court Order, he or she may be required to attend a sanctions hearing. Such hearings generally are held on the third Thursday of each month.

At such a hearing, the juvenile will be expected to explain why he or she has not complied with the Order. The Judge may modify the Order or impose one of the four sanctions authorized under Sec. 938.355 (6), Wis. Stats.

The four possible sanctions are:

1) community service

2) home detention

3) driver's license suspension

4) commitment to the juvenile detention center.
