Juvenile Crimes

What are juvenile crimes?

A juvenile crime can include a DUI arrest, minor in possession, robbery, rape, murder, and any other crime that can be committed by an adult. Individuals under the age of 18 who commit these crimes can be punished under juvenile law.

Why you need a lawyer?

Juvenile convictions can have serious consequences. Families need a legal team that understands the system and can help young people avoid carrying the weight of a teenage mistake for life. Hire a lawyer the day your child is arrested and rely on their expertise throughout the process.

How young is too young to be held liable?

As well as having upper age limits, juvenile jurisdictions also have lower age limits. Most states specify that prior to age six or seven, juveniles lack mens rea, or criminal intent. At this young age, juveniles also are thought to lack the ability to tell right from wrong, or dolci incapax.

The age of the offender at the time the offense was committed typically determines jurisdiction. But in some states, age refers to the offender’s age at the time of apprehension. This arrangement allows for the sometimes lengthy periods it takes to clear a case.

How can we help?

It’s almost always helpful for minors to have lawyers in their juvenile cases. The lawyer should normally be one who specializes in or is at least familiar with juvenile court procedures. Research indicates that effective assistance of counsel can greatly affect a case’s outcome. For example, attorneys often can help by:

My child was arrested. What happens next?

It depends on what your child was arrested for and what crimes they are charged with. If your child is a juvenile, the complaint will be filed in juvenile court, and the case will be heard in front of a jury but will be closed to the public. The Court may determine that the child is delinquent and either place the child on probation or commit the child to DYS (the Department of Youth Services) until he or she turns eighteen. If your child is a “youthful offender,” charged with a more serious crime, the District Attorney may choose to file the complaint in juvenile court or by indictment (a formal charge in an open courtroom). The judge or jury may determine that the child is a youthful offender and sentence him or her to an adult sentence in prison, a juvenile DYS sentence, or a combination of both.

Can my child get a plea deal instead of going to trial?

Yes, possibly. A plea deal is an agreement worked out between your lawyer and the prosecutor or judge, which would include terms your child would need to complete in order to resolve his or her case without a trial. It is extremely important to discuss pleas with an experienced lawyer in order to make the best choices given your child’s situation.
