Common Juvenile Matters
We Work With
In most cases, a minor accused of a crime will have to go through the juvenile justice system. The purpose of this system is to discipline and caution a young offender rather than inflict a long-lasting punishment. However, if a minor is involved in a serious crime, such as a homicide or sexual assault, he or she may be tried as an adult. Some of the common less serious crimes involving minors include:
- Drug Possession
- Underage Drinking / Possession of Alcohol
- Thefts and Shoplifting
- Trespassing & Peace Disturbance
- Vandalism & Destruction of Property
- Fake ID / Credit Card Fraud
- In-school Violations
