San Antonio Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Central Texas Juvenile Crimes Defense Attorney
Juvenile offenders (minors ages 10 through 16) can be prosecuted for committing crimes. One of the main differences between the juvenile and adult justice systems is that under juvenile law (except in rare instances) juveniles are not entitled to jury punishment . A judge is the one who decides what punishment your son or daughter will receive after a finding that he or she committed a crime in most cases. Depending on the crime, a juvenile who is found guilty may be put away up in a youth penitentiary system (“TYC”) for a number of years or placed in a lock-down facility out of town; and a conviction can stay on your child’s record for life unless you have the record cleared.
Juvenile crimes and offenders are often treated aggressively by prosecutors, probation officers, and police officers – as though they were adults. If your son or daughter is a minor who has been arrested for committing a crime, it is important that you hire a criminal defense attorney who is experienced in defending juvenile crimes in particular.
