My mom put bills in my name. How can I clean up my credit?

First, I understand that no one here is my lawyer.
I recently ordered my free credit report for the first time. When I looked at the information, I discovered that my mom had put several utility bills and even credit cards in my name when I was a minor. Because she didn't always pay the bills on time, or at all, my credit is pretty bad. I'm not interested in pursuing criminal charges against my mom, but I do want to get these marks off my credit.
What can I do to fix my credit? Who should I contact and what should I say?
