THE NIMZ LAW FIRM
People under the age of 17 don’t have the common sense of an adult, so the juvenile courts take a gentler response than adult courts. However, any conviction can have serious consequences, including jail time or big fines. If your child is facing charges, it’s imperative you get a knowledgeable attorney who has experience defending young people from serious criminal charges.
In juvenile proceedings, the juvenile will go through a civil proceeding instead of a criminal proceeding. In this case, the juvenile system has confidentiality rules that help prevent one mistake from hurting your child as an adult.
If the prosecution is aiming to charge your child as an adult, it’s best to try to keep the case in the juvenile system. Nimz Law will fight to keep it within the juvenile system so your child can recover from their mistake if there’s a conviction.
