Quite the opposite. Adjudicated refers to children that are under a court's jurisdiction usually as a result of having engaged in delinquent behavior and not having a legal guardian that could be entrusted with being responsible for him or her. So it's like the court have custody in a way.

When something is non adjudicated it means it has not been legally decided. It is not binding, because it is not legally done.

Adjudicated guilty means the judge resolved the case and found the defendant guilty. Adjudication is the final action that the judge took.
