The arrest of your child is one of the most emotional events one will experience.
While juveniles are not housed with adults, they are taken to a jail and housed with others under the age of 18. The juvenile and adult criminal process are drastically different. Adults are generally given a bond after an arrest whereas a juvenile’s release is based on a point system calculating numerous factors. If your child scores 12 points or higher there is a presumption that he/she will be detained in secure detention (jail).
Do not be mistaken. Juvenile cases are serious. The outcomes can have a lasting effect. The sentencing exposure for a child can range from simple probation to a high-risk commitment facility. No matter what your child is accused of or crime they actually committed, we will fight to ensure they are treated fairly and their future is protected.
