Juvenile Crime Defense
Juvenile Defense Lawyer
Today’s juvenile crime is more than simple pranks-gone-wrong. Although many juvenile crimes deal with shoplifting, vandalism and underage drinking, it’s not uncommon nowadays to see juveniles bound over to adult court after being charged with serious crimes. These adult charges may include burglary, assault, possession and use of drugs, driving under the influence, and having sexual contact with under-the-age-of-consent young people.
If your son or daughter is charged with a juvenile offense, you need a juvenile criminal defense attorney who understands both the juvenile and adult justice systems. A juvenile court is different in many ways from the adult court system; prosecutors and judges place a heavier emphasis on rehabilitation that will change lives and discourage future criminal activity. Often punishments can range from probation to time spent in a juvenile rehabilitation or detention center. With the right attorney, the punishment and rehabilitation for a juvenile criminal is more likely to have a positive outcome.
