- Underage drinking and driving
- Minor in possession
Regardless of the type of charges that the juvenile is facing, it is important that aggressive, experienced legal representation be obtained in order to protect the accused. Child crime and violent crime charges are serious. Take serious action today.
Punishments For Juvenile Crime Charges
Juveniles do not go to jail if convicted. They can however be incarcerated for a specified amount of time at a juvenile detention facility. They may also be responsible for fines or restitution, if ordered by the court.
However, some of the most severe consequences are the ones that affect the juvenile’s future. The criminal history may affect their schooling, ability to obtain loans or apply to college, or obtain housing in the future.
