and friends that have bad ideas. Once caught in the justice system, whether
for a misdemeanor or felony crime, the situation is extremely dangerous.

violent crimes such as manslaughter, murder and other serious violent crimes.

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
