Why You Want to Get Your Own Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Juvenile court works differently than regular criminal court for adults. Where an adult will face a judge and jury, a juvenile only faces a judge. A good defense attorney will be aware of all the possible drawbacks to this setup, as well as all the opportunities it creates. A good juvenile court lawyer will know what arguments and evidence the judge needs to hear to prevent them from handing down the harshest penalties.
Your attorney will know how to dispute unfair characterizations and how to use the available evidence to tell your child’s story. Furthermore, if your child is at risk of being tried as an adult, a lawyer can fight this possibility, which brings with it the potential for much harsher penalties, including life in prison or even the death penalty in particularly serious cases. With a criminal defense lawyer on your side, the judge is much more likely to favor rehabilitative efforts over punishments for your child.
