Indianapolis Juvenile Crime Attorney

The court is now involved with your family – What do you do?

As a parent, nothing can be more unsettling than to find out that your child has been involved in an illegal activity and is now facing criminal offense charges. Crimes committed by minors are very often identical to those committed by adults. Drug possession, sexual assault, theft, arson, and driving offenses, such as DUI and vehicular homicide, all have similar impact and consequences regardless of the age of the perpetrator. Other charges and penalties, such as underage drinking, possession of cigarettes, or possession of firearms by a minor, are exclusive to minors.

The reason that juvenile cases are heard in a separate court is because society recognizes that youthful offenders who cross the line often do so because of lack of judgment, life experience, and foresight. The juvenile justice system is based on the premise that underage offenders are more likely to be rehabilitated and have their lives turned around if “intelligent” intervention takes place. However, everyone knows it doesn’t always work out this way. If your child has had a brush with the law, you need to secure strong legal representation as soon as possible to protect their future and immediate well being.

Most parents would much prefer to see their child go into private counseling or rehabilitation program rather than be sent to a state run program which would remove them from their home and be grouped together with more troubled and serious offenders. This is especially true for such offenses as possession of marijuana or possession of marijuana with the intent to sell. Hiring the right defense attorney now can significantly increase the odds that the best disposition in your child’s case can be negotiated.
