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
  • Probation
  • House arrest
  • Detention

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, including:

  • Child in Need of Supervision
  • Detention hearings
  • Adjudication and disposition hearings
  • Transfer cases
  • Certification cases
