Types of Juvenile Crime Cases We Handle in Hendry County, FL
Immediate, aggressive representation is crucial if your child has been taken into custody for any type of crime. Like adults, minors have specific rights when it comes to criminal proceedings. Minors are actually offered slightly more protection to help avoid situations where they may be taken advantage of due to their age and lack of experience. Minors typically face corrective proceedings in juvenile court, where the penalties are usually geared toward rehabilitation as opposed to imprisonment. With serious or violent crimes, however, a minor may be tried as an adult.
It is important to work with a Hendry County criminal defense attorney who is experienced specifically in juvenile proceedings, who can effectively handle anything law enforcement or juvenile court personnel may throw your way.
