Collin County Juvenile Crimes Attorney
Juvenile Crimes Can Ruin a Child’s Future
Children don’t always realize the consequences of their actions. Odds are, most people have committed some crime in their childhood, like stealing a candy bar or hitting another child in anger. The majority of the time, the legal system does not get involved and instead relies on adults in the child’s life to teach them right from wrong. When the court gets involved, you risk lifelong problems. Juvenile crimes have the ability to label and punish that child for the rest of his or her life. You need the right attorney on your side to protect your child. The Lucé Evans Law firm has a team of experienced attorneys who can help you and your family through this difficult time.
Juvenile Delinquency Attorney
When a child has violated the law, they are referred to as “delinquent acts” rather than crimes. The juvenile system is vastly different than the adult court system. Children don’t have all the constitutional protections adults have in criminal court. To assist a child who has committed a delinquent act, you need to have proper representation. Call the Lucé Evans Law Firm today and discuss the facts of your case. We can help you navigate through the juvenile system.
Juvenile Assault and Battery Charges
It is common for kids to get in fights. When a child has injured another, they may be charged with juvenile assault and battery charges, even if the injuries are not severe. For assault and battery, a child could receive jail time in a juvenile facility and hefty fines. If your child is charged with assault and battery, it is crucial that you find an attorney experienced in juvenile crimes.
Common Penalizations For Juvenile Offenders
In juvenile court, there is a large focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment. The juvenile courts have a bit more discretion in sentencing compared to the adult court system. The most common penalizations for juvenile offenders include…
- Incarceration in a juvenile facility
- House arrest
- Placement in a rehabilitation center
- Community service
- Drug rehabilitation
