Juvenile Delinquency Laws & Penalties

Although most juvenile crimes are similar to those for adult offenders, the penalties and laws associated with juvenile offenses are substantially different. Two of the most significant differences are that juveniles are not entitled to a trial by jury, nor are they allowed to be released on bail.

In many juvenile cases, we have a strong chance of getting your child rehabilitation instead of placement in a local or state detention facility.

It is not unusual for disposition (sentencing) to also include counseling and community service. However, it can result in detention in a youth facility for up to the age of 21 and an inability to seal their record upon reaching 18 years of age. Because of these possibilities, as well as the special laws involved with juvenile offenses, it is absolutely essential to have a criminal attorney there to protect your child’s rights and attempt to get the charges dropped or reduced.

We can defend minors against any and all felonies and misdemeanors, including:

  • Violent crimes
  • Drug charges
  • Traffic charges
  • Unruly behavior
  • Truancy
