Sugar Land Juvenile Crime Lawyer
Get Powerful Defense for Your Child
If your child has been arrested for committing any type of crime, you need
to speak with an aggressive defense firm immediately to work out a strategy
for effectively resolving the situation and keeping your child out of
the criminal justice system. Minors under the age of 17 years old will
be tried in the juvenile court, unless the county government succeeds
in requesting to have the case tried as an adult crime, in which circumstance
the case will be sent to a regular criminal court.
The Texas Juvenile Justice System refers to crimes perpetrated by minors
as "delinquent conduct" or "conduct in need of supervision,"
and a conviction is known as adjudication. If your child is found guilty,
the verdict may include incarceration in the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center.
The Impact of Juvenile Charges
You should avoid letting the case go to trial if at all possible, because
if your child is made to stand before the judge, the prosecutor will most
likely pursue the maximum penalty allowable under law. It is often possible
to negotiate a settlement, because the state prefers to guide delinquent
juveniles towards rehabilitation rather than punishment, and you may be
able to propose an alternative to the institutional psychological counseling
and education programs.
You need the representation of a hard hitting
Sugar Land criminal defense attorney to protect the rights of your child under law. It is important to get
started working with your attorney early in the case as your chances of
a successful outcome will depend on how well prepared you are before meeting
with prosecutors and attending court hearings.
