Juvenile Crimes

Has your child been charged with a crime?

If your child is facing criminal charges, this is a difficult time for your entire family. You worry about what will happen to your child if convicted. Will he or she have to serve time in a detention facility? Or worse, in a prison?

Depending on the charges, your child could face a sentence including community service, mandatory drug or alcohol treatment, fines of several hundred dollars, and commitment to the Department of Youth Services. If your child is charged as an adult for a serious crime, he or she could potentially face imprisonment.

In addition, a criminal conviction can have lasting consequences beyond the sentence. Having a criminal record can potentially prevent your child from getting into the college of his or her choice, renting an apartment, and finding employment. Employers, landlords, and college admission agencies all look at criminal history.

As a parent, you want what’s best for your child. You don’t want your child’s entire future to be ruined by a criminal conviction.
