Protecting the Rights of Minors in Criminal Prosecution
The teenage and young adult years are a vulnerable time for many people. As you are trying to find your footing in life and expanding your sphere of interest, you can unwittingly find yourself in circumstances that can have long-lasting implications. People you don’t really know can get you into some serious trouble.
At our offices, we work closely with juveniles and their parents, aggressively protecting your rights when you have been arrested for or charged with violating the law. We know that the criminal justice system can be intimidating and confusing. Police officers and prosecutors will often use their knowledge and experience to scare you into making admissions or saying things you really don’t want to say. The terms they use can be confusing.
We handle the defense for all types of juvenile crimes, from the so-called “status offenses,” such as truancy, to more serious violations of the law, including:
- Theft offenses
- DUI / DWI / DAI
- Assault, from threats at school to harassment or battery
- Sex crimes
- Destruction of property
We will look at alternative programs, when appropriate, to help minimize the consequences of a juvenile conviction.
