What penalties can a court give in a juvenile case?

When a juvenile is adjudicated as delinquent in New Jersey, the sentencing judge has several penalties available depending on the nature of the offense and the juvenile's record. Penalties imposed in juvenile cases are supposed to be designed to rehabilitate the defendant while also giving sufficient penalties to act as a deterrence from committing future offenses.
