Champaign Juvenile Defense Attorney

Defending Juveniles from Harmful Criminal Convictions

Has your child been arrested? If so, it is important that you understand the consequences they may be facing, especially if they are not properly defended by a skilled Champaign criminal defense attorney. Juvenile offenders are not processed or tried the same way adults are. In most cases, a juvenile is charged with a crime and sent home under supervision until their hearing. If the offense is more serious, they will be processed and detained in a juvenile detention facility instead of a county jail. Trials for juvenile cases are different, as well. The penalties for a conviction may be reduced and, if sentenced for their crime, an underage individual will be sent to a residential program or rehab center instead of jail or prison.

Juvenile offenders can still be tried as adults, however, if they have committed a grievous offense, such as:

In these cases, the prosecution requests for the child to be tried as an adult and the jury makes a decision to grant or deny the request. Whether or not your child is facing such a serious and terrifying possibility, it is your duty as the parent to ensure that your child's future is protected. Criminal charges can damage their reputation and respect, and a conviction could ruin their chances of finishing school or obtaining a decent career. Retain a capable defense lawyer immediately to fight their charges and obtain a dismissal as soon as possible.
