Aggressive Defense Against Juvenile Crimes

You just received the call no parent expects. Your child has been arrested, detained and now subject to the juvenile justice system.

What are your rights as a parent? What are your child's rights?

At Aiken, O'Halloran and Banyai, we understand your fear and apprehension. Juvenile arrests can have far-reaching consequences. If you are fortunate, it may be a relatively minor offense for underage drinking on spring break. It may be a simple curfew violation, driving offense or minor marijuana charge. On the other hand, it may be a serious felony violation like home burglary, car theft, auto burglary or robbery. In the worst case scenario, it may be a sex crime allegation that can affect your child's entire future. Criminal charges may result in your child being immediately expelled or transferred out of school based simply on the allegations. What happens now affects his or her future.

Do Not Let Your Child Be Charged As An Adult

Don't wait to hire an attorney. In some instances, your child can be charged as an adult, and timely intervention by an experienced attorney can make the difference between a clean record and the burden of a criminal history your child may have to carry for life.

It is critical that your child be represented effectively at his or her first appearance before the court. The judge will be deciding whether or not to detain your child in the juvenile justice center pending a resolution of his or her case.
