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.
