Phoenix Juvenile Crime Attorney
Juvenile Crimes Defense in Phoenix, Arizona
A juvenile crime is a criminal offense committed by a person under the
age of 18. Minors are capable of committing the same criminal offenses
as adults. When a minor is
charged with a crime, it’s important for him or her to contact a Phoenix juvenile criminal
lawyer who has experience handling juvenile crimes cases, as the laws,
courts, and regulations governing juvenile crimes are different from those
governing adult cases. At Knowles Law Firm, PLC Phoenix criminal defense
attorney Anthony Knowles has successfully defended minors charged with
a vast array of juveniles crimes, such as:
Penalties for Juvenile Crimes
If someone under the age of 18 is convicted of a crime, the state will
typically opt to rehabilitate the minor in lieu of sentencing him or her
to jail time. The minor may also be ordered to perform community service.
The reasoning for this is that there is a better chance the minor will
not commit a crime again if they receive counseling and/or rehabilitation.
juvenile felonies, such as assault with a weapon,
rape, or murder do not make the minor eligible for this option and can result
in heavier penalties including fines, time in a juvenile detention facility,
jail time, and more.
It’s important to remember that a juvenile crimes conviction can
affect a child’s life for years to come. Unless a conviction as
been expunged, a juvenile crime will remain on a minor’s criminal
record forever. Banks, educational institutions, employers, landlords,
etc. will all have access to this information, as it is public record.
