Juvenile law combines both civil law and criminal law. Juvenile Criminal Law involves juveniles (persons under the age of 18) who are responsible for criminal acts. Under Juvenile Civil Law, minors are rehabilitated and records are kept that can follow minors into their adulthood.
If your child is charged with a criminal act under juvenile law, it can impact the rest of their life. Their criminal record can be affected, as well as their freedom and even sometimes their ability to drive. Under juvenile law, prosecutors often charge juveniles as adults and subject them to adult sentences. Minors found guilty in juvenile law may be sent to reform school, placed in foster care or be placed on probation or house arrest.
A juvenile charged with a crime may need the help of a qualified juvenile criminal lawyer. Juveniles have the right to defend themselves against the life changing consequences of juvenile law. Juvenile law attorneys understand the juvenile courts and the procedures and can help you in your case.
