Has Your Child Been Arrested for a Juvenile Crime?
Getting a call in the middle of the night about your child getting arrested is considered one of a parent’s worst nightmare. Whether your child is innocent or got caught in the middle of a misunderstanding, you need to help them avoid conviction or reduce the penalties they face.

We can investigate their case, gather evidence, and mount a strong defense to help get a positive outcome. With former prosecutors and district attorneys at our firm, we can anticipate how the prosecution will approach your child’s case and guide him/her through the juvenile court system.
The Consequences of a Juvenile Crime Conviction
Children younger than 18 years of age can be charged with a wide range of misdemeanor and felony crimes in Texas. Unlike adult criminal cases, juvenile crimes are handled in civil proceedings. Common forms of punishment include detention, probation, house arrest, community service, restitution, counseling, rehabilitation services, and even jail time in some circumstances.
However, if a child who is more than 14 years old commits a serious felony, it is possible that the child can be tried as an adult. This means that if a child is convicted in criminal court, they face the possibility of serving the maximum penalties as an adult would.
A conviction on a child’s criminal record can have a significantly negative impact on the rest of his/her life. A permanent criminal record can make it difficult to find employment, get accepted into college, and take advantage of life’s opportunities.
