Miami Juvenile Crime Lawyer

Defending Against Juvenile Crimes in Florida

One of the worst experiences for a parent is being informed that his or her child has been arrested for a crime. The first thing to do is contact a Miami criminal defense attorney who is knowledgeable in the juvenile justice system and who will fight to preserve your child's rights. Your child will want to be released from custody as soon as possible. Whether the juvenile authority recommends placing a child in home detention, holding a child for 21 days or releasing the child to his or her parents will depend up the seriousness of the offense and the child's prior record among other factors. Legal counsel can bring persuasive arguments to the judge for release of the child.

Navigating the Florida Juvenile Justice System

The juvenile justice system has been established to provide young offenders with an opportunity for education and rehabilitation so they may become more responsible citizens. If the charges are serious a zealous prosecutor can argue that a child as young as 14 should be held in county jail and tried as an adult. A criminal record can adversely affect a young person's educational and career opportunities. A child can make an error in judgment and believes that children deserve another chance rather than being subjected to the harsh environment of being tried as an adult.

A skilled juvenile defense lawyer at the firm is prepared to represent a juvenile charged with any offense such as DUI, drug crimes, underage drinking, shoplifting, robbery, burglary, vandalism, assault, sex crimes, and other serious charges. You may have many questions concerning the charges, your child's rights, and possible effective defense strategies. For more information visit the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.

Your Miami criminal defense lawyer at the firm will answer your questions in full and give you sound advice so that you and your child can make an informed decision on how to proceed. Contact us today.
