The court does not have jurisdiction for the so-called 1st offense.  It is under the Ch. 69 oath for the acts 2018 and an act relative to the Criminal Justice Reform Act.  There is an interesting case called “Wallace W” which is a SJC case in Massachusetts in 2019 which provides that a 1st offense of a misdemeanor that there has not previously been an interesting case of delinquency that you could look at and make a very strong argument that the case should be dismissed as the juvenile court does not have jurisdiction.

It is important to look at the juvenile’s record and what the charges are if it is a felony or a misdemeanor.  You can potentially file a Motion to Dismiss following the Wallace W analysis.
