What Are The Consequences Of Juvenile Crime Conviction?
The penalties for a juvenile offense can vary widely depending on the child’s background, the severity of the offense and the court’s discretion. In many cases, courts favor rehabilitative sentences like community service, counseling or electronic monitoring.
However, in some cases the offender may face incarceration. This is extremely serious as it removes the child from his or her family, education and other important parts of growing up. At Mingledorff Law, we do everything possible to ensure our young clients are treated fairly by fighting for their rights and futures.
In addition, young people may face enhanced penalties if they commit a crime on school premises.
