A Juvenile Waiver occurs whenever a judge decides to transfer a case from juvenile court to an adult court. The juvenile will be tried as an adult and will be denied whatever protections may exist in juvenile proceedings. Juvenile waivers are allowed in nearly all states. The decision to “waive” juvenile protections and try the juvenile as an adult rests with the judge, not the defendant.
