Understanding Juvenile Crimes
A juvenile crime is defined as an illegal act that is committed by an individual under the age of 17 years. In many juvenile crime cases, parents automatically assume that their children, being minors, will not be subjected to severe legal penalties if convicted. Unfortunately, these assumptions are frequently mistaken. Prosecutors in our state take juvenile crimes very seriously, and often seek severe punishments for minors who have been convicted. If a minor has committed a felony offense and is nearing the age of 17, he or she may even be charged as an adult.
Your Child Has Rights - Protect Them
Minors convicted of a crime can face penalties that include fines, probation, mandatory drug/alcohol counseling, community service, placement in a juvenile detention center, and even jail time. As a person charged with a criminal offense, your child has the same right to fair legal proceedings as any adult facing charges. An experienced criminal defense attorney can protect your child's rights while pursuing an outcome that involves the reduction or dismissal of the charges.
