Protecting Minors Facing Criminal Charges
For any crime that an adult can commit, the same could be done by a child. However, the justice system for minors is more focused on rehabilitation than punishment. In fact, cases involving minors are tried in a separate court system entirely. Because of this, you need an attorney to defend your child. You need an attorney who is well-versed in juvenile criminal defense.
