Juvenile Law Matters Shouldn’t Be Taken Lightly
Every parent’s nightmare is a call from the police about their child. When an adult commits a crime, he goes to jail, and the adult criminal justice system determines his fate. When a child between the ages of 10 and 16 commits a crime, the juvenile court system becomes a part of your family’s life.
An Attorney Is Essential
Your child may be held in a juvenile detention center or may be released to his home if supervision is possible. If your child is found by the court to be responsible for the crime he may be:
- Placed on probation
- Sent to a group home
- Detained at the Texas Youth Commission
If your child is facing criminal charges, it is essential that you involve an attorney very early in the process. Texas law requires that your child has an attorney, but you cannot represent your child, and there is no guarantee for a court-appointed attorney.
