Do Not Leave Your Child At The Mercy Of The System
Juvenile offenders are subject to different laws and procedures than adults who have been charged with crimes. Offenders who are not 18 years old typically enter the juvenile justice system, not the adult criminal justice system.
The primary goal of the juvenile justice system is rehabilitation. However, while juvenile courts are not criminal courts, your child still needs a strong defense lawyer act in their best interest. At the Law Offices of Myles S. Breiner, we have a successful history representing juveniles.
A Wide Range Of Possible Outcomes
Juvenile courts are considered civil courts, not criminal, and minor are charged with committing a delinquent act, rather than a crime.
The juvenile court has broad discretion when dealing with the case. Depending on the severity of the case, there is a wide range of outcomes. These can include: community service, counseling, probation and home confinement. In the worst-case scenario, the judge can send the youth to an adult jail or prison. At the other end of the spectrum, one of the best outcomes is for your child to enter a diversion program and have their criminal history sealed or expunged.
