The criminal justice system works differently when juvenile crimes are at issue. As juvenile criminal defense attorneys, we know that we will be working with families, not just individual defendants, when we defend teenagers.
Juvenile Court is for children 18 and under. The juvenile court system is completely separate from the adult system. There, the court searches for solutions to help kids understand the causes of the behavior.
Attorney Nick Alcock is dedicated to helping juveniles charged with criminal cases. He believes that children should be treated differently by the courts and deserve a second chance.
Juveniles can be charged with the same range of crimes as adults, but the penalties they face are far less severe in most cases. Minor children may be charged as adults, whether they remain in the Superior Court, or are transferred to the Juvenile Court is up to a Juvenile Court judge.
Most non-violent juvenile offenses will result in probation and educational rehabilitation, often in the form of community service. Children who have committed violent offenses run a much higher risk of being charged as an adult.
If your child has been charged with a crime, it is important that you contact an attorney right away. Getting an attorney involved at the beginning of a proceeding allows the attorney a better opportunity to fight to get the proceeding moved to a juvenile court judge.
