Defense for a Juvenile Crime

If your child has been charged with a crime, it can be devastating not only to the child, but to the entire family. In many instances, a normally good child can be influenced by friends and acquaintances to violate the law. A juvenile (person under the age of 18) can be charged with an infraction, misdemeanor or felony crime and, in severe circumstances, can be tried as an adult and face adult penalties.

It is generally understood that juveniles who commit crimes should be treated differently than adults by offering rehabilitation, educational and social service help rather than just handing out punishments.

Our professional Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys from Law Offices of David D. Diamond work diligently to execute effective defense strategies so that your child is not tried as an adult and can be rehabilitated, as opposed to having to endure a harsh punishment.

Being Tried as an Adult

A child as young as 14 can be tried as an adult if the child has committed a serious felony such as murder and prosecutors will sometimes doggedly pursue this. A 16 or 17 year old can be sentenced to state prison if found guilty of a felony. In this type of circumstance, failure to retain the services of an attorney can have drastic repercussions on the child's future for many years to come. Incarceration often leads to more legal trouble, as the contacts made in prison and the attitudes and beliefs of convicted criminals are not conducive to rehabilitation.
