When we hear about criminal offenders, we don't think that could be us and we certainly do not think it could be our own sons or daughters. However, numerous juveniles in Virginia and other states across the nation are accused of minor and major offenses every year. This not only requires the juvenile's parent or guardian to consider what to do regarding a defense, but it also means that a juvenile's life and future could be greatly impacted by these allegations.

Depending on the details and circumstances surrounding the criminal charges, a juvenile could face additional hardships on top of the criminal charges. In other words, expulsion or suspension from school could also be a reality. Because of that, it important to consider the legal options available to juvenile offenders immediately after being charged. At the Law Offices of Christie A Leary, P.C., our knowledgeable legal team has the skills and resources to help juveniles navigate the legal system. Our law firm is dedicated to serving juveniles and their loved ones in the Fairfax area.

Although a juvenile is initially charged with a juvenile crime, it is possible for the court to decide that the youth should in fact be charged as an adult. This does not only mean that the minor will have their case moved to the adult system, he or she will also face harsher penalties if a conviction occurs. Our law firm is prepared to assist our clients if this situation arises, helping our clients assert a defense to remain in the juvenile system. Even if the case remains in the adult system, we are knowledgeable of the applicable laws that can help a defendant assert an aggressive defense.

To learn more, check out our law firm's juvenile crimes webpage. While it is not an easy situation to be in or deal with as a parent, it is certainly one that needs to be addressed. By taking the time to understand what defense options are available, a juvenile defendant could help protect their rights and their future.
