Understanding the Texas Juvenile Justice System
In Texas, a juvenile is considered anyone who is 17 years of age or younger.
If you are 18, you will be charged as an adult, even if you are still
in high school. Many often erroneously believe that when their child turns
18, their record will be cleared. However, this is not the case. Just
as with adult criminal convictions, juvenile criminal convictions have
the potential to follow you for life. That said, unlike adult criminal
cases, the Texas Juvenile Justice System focuses on rehabilitation and
providing young adults the opportunity to learn from their mistakes and
move forward in a positive direction.
Common sentences for juvenile crime convictions include:
- Treatment programs
- House arrest
Depending on the situation, your child might experience an interruption
in their education due to detention, house arrest, or in-patient treatment
programs, which may all impede their ability to continue their education.
If your child is facing criminal charges, an experienced juvenile crimes
lawyer can help them fight these charges, so they can move on and put
this incident behind them. If your child is convicted, our skilled attorney
can also help you minimize the long-term impact it may have on their life.
Dealing with Juvenile Cases
A criminal conviction for a misdemeanor or a felony can have a detrimental
effect on your child’s future. It can create a record for juvenile
delinquency and may even lead to placement in a detention center. In some
cases, a juvenile record can damage a child’s future education and
career options. If your child is facing criminal charges, there are a
variety of court proceedings that you must go through. These can be confusing
and complicated, so it is recommended that you work with an attorney to
prepare for them.
Our juvenile crimes defense attorney can help you with all court proceedings,
- Child in Need of Supervision
- Detention hearings
- Adjudication and disposition hearings
- Transfer cases
- Certification cases
