Fort Pierce Juvenile Crime Attorney
Criminal Defense Lawyer Protecting Florida’s Youth
The state of Florida focuses heavily on rehabilitating juveniles who have been convicted of a crime, and if your child has been arrested and charged with an offense, then it is important to ensure that they have a strong defense to their case. Most juvenile crimes are handled in the juvenile justice system rather than adult court; however, there are some severe circumstances under which a case will be direct filed with an adult court. If this is the case, then your child could face serious penalties for conviction and a record that will follow them for the rest of their life.
There are many different offenses that a young individual could be charged with, and the penalties for conviction are often much different than that of an adult. Where an adult may face extensive prison time, a juvenile may face community service hours. There are some crimes such as murder which could result in your child being charged as an adult depending on their age, and it is crucial that they have a strong representative on their side. I understand the severity of the situation that your child faces, and you can be sure that I will stand by them from start to finish of the situation that they face.
