Juvenile Delinquency

Probably the only legal scenario more frightening than being arrested and charged with a crime is when a child is arrested and charged with a crime.  Parents know that a stupid mistake or momentary lapse in judgment (often caused by problems with drugs or alcohol) can have lifelong consequences.  When a child’s mistake or lapse in judgment results in criminal accusations, the law requires that he or she must navigate the complexities of the juvenile justice system with the assistance of an attorney, no matter what the family decides. 

When a child is accused of a crime, the case is typically heard in Family Court instead of Criminal Court (though serious crimes will be transferred to Criminal Court and the child will be tried as an adult).  Unlike adult cases, children are tried by a Family Court Judge, not a jury, and the focus is often on rehabilitation instead of punishment.  However, while the stated goals of the juvenile justice system are focused on reform, too often children are treated like hardened criminals, dangerous to themselves and society.  They face many of the same challenges faced by adult defendants, including incarceration or “detention” in a Juvenile Detention Center.  The Law Offices of Todd Wilson represents children accused of crimes in juvenile proceedings, and will work to safeguard the child’s future.  Mr. Wilson defends children accused of all types of crimes other than sex crimes, including:

      • Alcohol offenses

      • Burglary
      • Disorderly conduct
      • Drug possession and distribution
      • Resisting arrest
      • Robbery
      • Theft
      • Weapons crimes

Every child deserves a skilled and aggressive defense, to help minimize the lifelong negative consequences of childish impulses.  Call for a free consultation.
