Charges involving a crime allegedly committed by a child between 10 and 16 are typically tried in juvenile court. If your child has been arrested and is in legal trouble, you will need to hire a competent attorney to represent them right away. Your child should exercise the right to remain silent and wait for a lawyer from The Law Firm of Blair T. Jones, PLLC to show up.
There are many different types of offenses for which a juvenile can be arrested. Virtually any crime that an adult can find themselves charged with, a juvenile could be in trouble for. It is important that you take action to hire a Round Rock criminal defense attorney who has experience with juvenile courts and the defense of juvenile charges.
A few examples of juvenile crime charges we defend include:
All juveniles have the right to be represented by a skilled and knowledgeable attorney. Our legal team has represented a wide range of juvenile cases and we are familiar with the way that the courts and prosecutors handle these cases. We take the time to find out exactly what evidence exists against your child and work to poke holes in their case. Our goal is to get the charges dropped or work to get the proposed penalties minimized.
Our Round Rock juvenile crime attorney and team believe that children and young adults are the future of our society. Putting them in jail or prison does not give them the opportunity to live up to their potential. This is an argument which often works in court, especially to convince a judge who is under the same belief.
