Youth naturally comes with indiscretion. Getting into trouble is part of growing up. However, some offenses can carry serious consequences that may follow a child into adulthood.
The justice system treats children differently than adults. The juvenile and domestic relations courts focus on rehabilitation rather than incarceration. With proper representation from an attorney who knows the nuances of juvenile representation, any charges may be reduced or dismissed so that the child can get back to growing up and becoming a productive and successful adult.
