Fox who understands what you are going through and will take the time to answer your and your child's questions.

Examples of Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile crimes can include any adult offense, but some are exclusively age-related. For example, only a juvenile can be charged with truancy or with minor possession of alcohol.

Juvenile criminal cases are heard in juvenile court, which operates much differently than the court system for adults. The juvenile court was established to provide more rehabilitation opportunities for a child, but also grants fewer rights to a child accused of a criminal offense. Conviction of a felony or misdemeanor can stay on your child's criminal record for life and may have an adverse effect on future education, employment opportunities, and his or her professional career.
