Atlanta Juvenile Crime Lawyer
Zealous Advocate for Young Defendants in Criminal Cases
Young people are far more likely to make mistakes than adults. Lack of experience gets in the way of good decision making. There are many issues that could come into play, including peer pressure, lack of confidence and friends that have bad ideas. Once caught in the justice system, whether for a misdemeanor or felony crime, the situation is extremely dangerous. For some crimes, the prosecutor will attempt to have a case moved to adult court, typically when dealing with violent crimes such as manslaughter, murder and other serious violent crimes.
The juvenile court system is geared to rehabilitate the young, and get them out of the system and back on track before it is too late. The adult justice system is focused on punishment, although there is some shift towards rehabilitation for non-violent crimes. No matter what situation your child is in legally, you need to ensure that everything possible is done to reduce the damage. A conviction can be a very serious issue, and can lead to an inability to get a job, being restricted from entering certain colleges, and the inability to get a professional license, and other dangers.
