If you or a loved one have been arrested and charged with a juvenile offense, it is important that you understand the charges against you and what your legal rights are. Call me to discuss your case, your options, and the potential outcomes.
Everyone makes mistakes, especially when we are young. These mistakes do not define us, it is simply the process by which we learn and grow. Luckily, youthful transgressions do not have to follow us around for the rest of our lives.
Just because it is a juvenile offense does not mean there are not potentially severe and lasting consequences at stake. The juvenile court system has a variety of punishments at its disposal, many of which are no cakewalk. In fact, if the prosecutor deems the crime egregious enough, they may seek to charge the juvenile with a crime as an adult. I will fight hard to make sure this does not take place.
Juvenile Court gives us more opportunity to negotiate a sentence less focused on punishment and more centered around more constructive sentencing options involving education, rehabilitation, and community service. In the end, my primary goal is always to negotiate an outcome where any offense can be sealed or removed from the juveniles record. Idaho was recently found to be dead last in sealing and removing juvenile records. This is why it is important to have an attorney to fight by your side. There is no reason that a youthful transgressions should follow you around for the rest of your life!
