Quality Representation Through The Juvenile Court System
The seriousness of the criminal offense depends may turn on whether it is handled in juvenile court, or certified to adult court. It is possible for juveniles to be tried as adults if they commit what is considered an “adult crime.” Serious offenses, such as murder, may be considered an “adult level offense.” This means that a juvenile would have to pay the same consequences as an adult. This is why it is important to have the proper legal representation that has experience in the types of crimes that juveniles commit, including:
- Underage DWI
- Theft and burglary
- Terroristic threats
- Probation violations
- Property crimes, such as vandalism
If a child is accused of homicide or murder, it is important that they have the representation they need so a fair conclusion can be reached in the case. The good news is that the juvenile court system tends to be geared toward rehabilitation of the child so they will have a better future rather than just on the punishment.
