Juvenile Crimes Can Have Lifelong Impacts

When someone under the age of 18 in Arizona allegedly commits a crime, they are typically charged as a juvenile instead of as an adult. Arizona has different laws and processes in place for dealing with juvenile offenders, including a different set of punishments.

However, there is not much difference between the types of crimes committed by an adult and a minor. Some of the most common crimes that our firm helps juvenile offenders and their families deal with include the following:

  • Aggravated Assault
  • Sex Crimes
  • Vandalism
  • Drug Crimes
  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Gang Crimes
  • Hate Crimes
  • Truancy
  • DUI
  • Murder/Manslaughter

This is certainly not a complete list of charges that a juvenile could face in Arizona. If your child is facing any charges, please speak to a Chandler criminal defense attorney immediately. Some of the penalties that a minor could face upon conviction include:

  • Intensive probation
  • Fines and restitution
  • Community service
  • Serving time in a juvenile correction facility
  • Facing charges as an adult

How Will An Attorney Help?

When you secure a Chandler juvenile crimes attorney, you are ensuring that your child has the legal representation they need for their case. With so much at stake and a child’s future on the line, you should not rely on a public defender. An attorney will work diligently to formulate various strategies for a child’s defense. This could include:

  • Proving that the child did not commit the crime in question
  • Showing that a child was not mentally capable of understanding the consequences of their actions
  • Proving that the police did not follow proper procedures when handling the offense
  • Showing the child’s rights were violated by law enforcement

An attorney will also be vital for helping through the sentencing phase. The goal, if a child is convicted of a crime, is to ensure that they have the resources necessary to completely rehabilitate and re-enter society with a fresh start.
