When a juvenile, one who is under the age of 18, does not exercise better judgment and commits a crime, they are generally tried in juvenile court. When the crime is considered a serious offense, such as a homicide, depending upon the circumstances and evidence against them, the district attorneys office may determine that the juvenile should be tried as an adult.
The youth of today are under a great deal of peer pressure to "fit in" and good kids sometimes make mistakes in judgment which involve acts which are criminal in nature.
When a juvenile is arrested for a criminal act, it does not have to destroy their opportunity to learn from their mistake and become productive members of society.
Any juvenile crime has the potential of time served in a juvenile detention facility or other penalties, and therefore should be aggressively defended. The defense of these juvenile charges are best served with the advice, assistance, and guidance of experienced legal counsel.
While your child is innocent until proven guilty, waiving your child's rights and the failure to hire an experienced juvenile crime defense attorney could result in negative consequences which may have lasting effects for your child's future.
