We represent the accused, and are here for their families, too.
A juvenile defense attorney from our firm can uphold the rights and interests of your child before the courts, and provide them with the aggressive representation that they will need to face the prosecution. A conviction on felony charges can affect your teen’s eligibility for admission to college and disqualify them from federally funded financial aid programs that assist students with the costs of their education. Depending upon the nature and severity of the charges, your teen may be tried and sentenced as an adult, which could lead to heftier fines and longer prison terms.
Call a juvenile defense attorney, if your child is facing any of the following:
- Burglary of residence or auto
- Felony theft, which is the stealing of item(s) valued at $1,000.00 or more
- Property damage with total damages exceeding $1,000.00
- Aggravated battery
- Possession of controlled substances and/or illegal drugs
- Sexual offenses
- Our juvenile defense attorney can explain the full range of charges and penalties once he has reviewed the allegations of your child’s case
Your child has the very same constitutional rights and protections as any other adult defendant facing felony charges. They are entitled to the benefit of legal counsel, a juvenile defense attorney, by the means of their Miranda Rights, and they are entitled to the proper performances of search and seizure, due process, discovery, etc.
Some of the differences between the criminal proceedings of an adult and those of a youth are:
- Adolescents are not entitled to a jury composed of their peers (jury duty is an adult activity)
- Their trials are always held before a judge, who acts as both the Trier of Fact and arbiter – or authority to determine the outcome of the case
Your child’s criminal history, if one exists, will be reviewed and considered, before the sentencing is made. Alternative methods of corrective sentencing may be available, if your child has committed the type of crime that would indicate that alternative rehabilitation measures were warranted. Juveniles with histories of addiction, for instance, may be able to avoid state detention centers by sentences that, instead, require them to participate in a detox and rehabilitation program. Others may need more intensive types of therapies that would place them, alternatively, in psychiatric or mental health facilities.
