Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile crimes can represent particularly confusing territory in the Massachusetts court system. Policies on how to charge juveniles and whether they ought to be treated as adults under the law remain inconsistent and changing. Sometimes it can depend on the charge. Common charges such as underage drinking, transportation of alcohol, and shoplifting often do not result in time in court or an altered criminal record provided you are able to retain the services of a good criminal defense attorney. Other charges for violent crimes, theft, or sex crimes can have wide-ranging consequences heavily dependent on how a court and prosecutor decides to view the crime and the offender. Charged as an adult, a juvenile can face drastic consequences for their immediate and long-term future, making it difficult to complete an education, acquire a decent job, find a home, and so on.

Facing charges as a juvenile can be an overwhelming experience, especially considering that approaches to juvenile crimes are so varied and inconsistent. At Greater Boston Law, we will find the best way to prevent criminal charges from having a negative impact on you and your future. Luckily, as a juvenile, there may be more opportunities to have charges reduced or dropped given some evidence of a change in behavior or the initial misunderstandings that led to the alleged criminal behavior in the first place. Without a criminal defense attorney on your side, some of these opportunities to avoid the heavy, lifelong consequences of being tried as an adult will very likely be missed. We work with a juvenile's future opportunities in mind, and ideally come to an agreement whereby the alleged offender retains their rights and liberties into adulthood.
