The justice system doesn’t treat juvenile crimes the same as adult crimes. Therefore, understanding what to expect when your minor commits a crime can make the process less daunting. You can also hire a criminal attorney to guide you through the juvenile case process.
Here are three things you need to know about juvenile cases.
- The court can charge your child as an adult under certain circumstances.
- Your child may be eligible for a special disposition, also known as a consent decree.
- Your child has a right to speak to a criminal attorney.
