Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile Crimes Lawyers Minnesota

Being the parent of a child that has been arrested for a criminal offense is very difficult because you worry about your child’s future. Nonetheless, juvenile cases are typically handled differently from adult cases. The laws are different. There are some cases in which a teenager may be tried as an adult, but a certain set of circumstances must exist for that to occur. One of the goals of your St. Paul criminal defense attorney is to keep the case in juvenile court. Another goal is to obtain the best result for your child so that he or she can have the best possible future.

If your child has been accused of a crime, it is imperative that you seek the representation of an experienced Minnesota criminal defense attorney. The attorney will protect your child’s rights, provide sound advice that will educate so the right decisions will be made, and you will receive the support and advocacy that you and your child need.

Experienced In All Types Of Juvenile Crimes

Juveniles can commit the same offenses as adults. However, there are some offenses that are more common among juveniles than others. Those include:

  • Assault
  • Burglary
  • Underage DWI
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Drug possession
  • Probation violations
  • Terroristic threats
  • Arson
  • Vandalism

It is possible for juveniles to be charged with even more serious offenses, such as sex crimes or murder or homicide. It is very possible for these offenses to be tried in adult court, which means adult penalties for the juvenile. The court will determine if the child is of an age in which they would know better than to commit the crime. If the court determines that they can handle the adult consequences for allegedly committing an adult crime, then the case is not tried in juvenile court.

  • When I was injured at work and the insurance company denied my claim, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had medical bills mounting, no income, and three children to take care of. Josh helped me understand the process, how long it would take, and in the end, he got all my medical bills paid and got me paid for my injury. In one of the worst times in my life, it helped to able to count on an attorney who understands the law and who was on my side every step of the way.

  • I got injured when a piece of sheet rock fell on my back. The insurance company doctor said my herniated disc was age related and not because of what fell on my back.
