Our Kent Juvenile Crime Lawyers Offer Reliable Counsel

juvenileTwo days after your child is arrested on a juvenile charge, they will face an automatic detention hearing. Your Kent juvenile criminal lawyer will help you understand what to expect, and review potential outcomes.

It's true that the state must supply a public defender, but sometimes they are not available on such short notice. Still, you have immediate concerns that need to be addressed. We offer a cost-free consultation for this purpose, so you can start getting answers without any obligation.

Judges render all decisions in juvenile cases, as opposed to a jury trial. Our Kent juvenile lawyers can help you with any of the following juvenile charges:

  • Minor DUI
  • Crimes involving drugs
  • Assault
  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery or Burglary
  • Vandalism (Criminal Mischief)

We will conduct an interview with your child in an effort to uncover facts concerning their arrest. In cases where serious crimes are alleged, the prosecution may seek to try your child as an adult. In these cases we will work hard to have the charges reduced to a juvenile criminal charge.

The juvenile court's main purpose is to rehabilitate minors, so your child could be enrolled in a treatment program. However, youths may also face punishments that include community supervision, detention, probation, and jail, although they may only be sentenced until they turn 21.

Negotiation is a key element of any criminal case, so our Kent juvenile crime attorneys will help you develop a strategy meant to protect your child's best interests. We will be at their side during any questioning by the police, and we may request that your child be placed in a diversion program in order to eradicate the charges from their record.
