Juvenile crimes are handled much differently than in the adult criminal justice system. These cases are sealed from public inspection, but they can show up on a background check.
Juvenile cases do not go away when the child becomes an adult, so it is essential to seek a skilled defense attorney for your child. We recommend that parents take their child’s criminal charges as serious as if they were adults. The consequences for a juvenile conviction can be severe, but with the right representation, they can be lessened or completely avoided.
