Juvenile Crimes Lawyer For South Florida
Criminal Defense Attorney Defending Juveniles
A teenager hanging out with the wrong crowd can quite often lead to being
involved or charged with an alleged crime, even if he or she didn’t
do it. Many teenage groups that have nothing better to do because of lack
of a job or something productive in their lives can start down the road
to bad habits. These bad habits can then lead to crimes such as stealing,
vandalism or alcohol/drug abuse.
A juvenile crime is any criminal act that is committed by a minor (person
under the legal 18 years of age). When your child or minor relative has
been accused of a juvenile crime, it is important to take quick action
to protect their record and reputation. Allowing a conviction to occur
can lead to serious consequences for your child and their future. Obtaining

There are many juvenile crimes a minor can be charged with. As with any
adult crime, consequences are severe and penalties and jail time can result
if convicted. Some common crimes include: shoplifting, vandalism, petty
theft, tagging (graffiti), assault, vehicular theft, drug offenses, DUI,
gang crimes and sexual assault. A minor convicted of a juvenile crime
can expect sentences which include fines, court and legal fees, community
service and probation. It can even occur that the juvenile is removed
from their home and placed in a juvenile detention center. Depending on
the severity of the crime, a juvenile is sometimes tried as an adult and
can end up incarcerated in the regular prison system.
