Juvenile crime, also known as juvenile delinquency, is participation in illegal behavior by minors, ie by individuals who are younger than the statutory age of majority. Depending on the type and the severity of the offense committed, it is possible for persons under 18 to be charged and tried as adults. And though most juvenile crimes are similar to those for adult offenders, the penalties and laws associated with juvenile crimes are very different. These charges could have serious repercussions on the minors future and they could follow him all the way into adulthood.
Hence it is imperative that the minor be represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney who is working with you to help protect your child’s rights and future.
The law firm of XXX, believes in defending the rights of clients. We also believe that juveniles have a better chance at life if they get placed at a child rehabilitation instead of placement in a state facility. We believe that children deserve a second chance. Often times, children are not aware of the magnitude of their actions. Sometimes learning disabilities or impulse control problems like A.D.HD. or A.D.D might trigger the offenses. Hence while medication or a good therapist might fix the issues, they might end up in the juvenile justice system. There might be attempts to take away the child or sentence them to detention in a youth facility such as a boot camp or juvenile hall.
