San Jose Juvenile Crime Attorney
Has your child been arrested?
One of the worst situations a parent can learn about is that their child has been accused of a crime. Even if you are able to keep your child out of juvenile detention, the mark still remains on their criminal record. In order to ensure that one mistake does not darken their chance of having a bright future, it is imperative that you have a strong legal advocate fighting for your child. In California, it is estimated that over 200,000 minors are arrested every year. Many end up in juvenile detention facilities and some are even processed in adult court.
The goal of the juvenile justice system is not punishment, but rather rehabilitation. This, unfortunately, does not always occur. Depending on the child's age and the severity of their crime, the court could choose to try them as an adult instead of a child. It is important that this does not happen to your child because the penalties are much more severe in these cases. Whether your son or daughter was accused of theft, underage drinking, a drug crime, or any other offense, please do not waste any time getting in touch with the firm.
