Los Angeles Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Has Your Child Been Arrested For A Crime?
While almost every adult knows that young people make mistakes, the criminal justice system is not always so forgiving. If a "juvenile" is convicted of a crime, it can create a lifetime of headaches and pain, especially if the crime is severe. While the person's record might be expunged or sealed once they hit a certain age, any potential fallout can follow them when the search for a job, buy a house and even apply to schools.
A Criminal Conviction Can Change Your Child's Life
Juvenile convictions are a serious matter and have to be treated seriously. If your son or daughter has been arrested, you need an attorney who is going to analyze the situation carefully to make sure that any charges, investigations or arrests don't ruin the young person's life. While being charged as a minor seems to have lesser consequences, there are countless people who did not treat it seriously enough and had a tough time getting financial aid or living in public housing. Even if a minor is accused of something simple as marijuana possession, it could lead to jail time, fines, removal from the home and worse.
