Article 45.0215 of the Code of Criminal Procedure specifies that Juveniles(under the age of 17 at time of alleged violation) are, required to enter a plea before the judge and have a parent, guardian or managing conservator present for the taking of the defendant’s plea and all other proceedings relating to the case. This requirement does not terminate once the juvenile reaches 17 if proceedings are still ongoing. The parent/guardian/managing conservator is not permitted to act as an attorney unless licensed by the State Bar of Texas.
Therefore, if the alleged violation occurred when the defendant was 16years of age or under, they are not able to pay online or plea at the window before a clerk of the court. A juvenile defendant is first required to meet with a Juvenile Case Manager (JCM) to then be placed on the most suitable docket to see the judge.
