It is common for children to make mistakes, but sometimes mistakes can be costly. You should contact a criminal defense attorney if your child has been arrested and asked to stand before a judge. A conviction can have detrimental effects on a child’s life even though children are not eligible for the same punishments that adults are susceptible to.
A skilled criminal defense attorney will ensure that your child gets counseling and rehabilitation, instead of juvenile incarceration.
Having a juvenile criminal record can scar a child’s life and prevent him/her of getting accepted to college, obtaining employment and can have a negative impact on his/her family.
