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. However, certain 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.
