Quincy Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Types of Juvenile Crimes
A person is considered to be a minor and can be charged with a juvenile
offense if they are below the age of 17 in Massachusetts. A juvenile crime
is any criminal act that is committed by a minor. Common juvenile crimes include
assault and battery. If a minor commits a crime, they can be arrested and charged just the
same as an adult. The difference in the process is that the focus is on
rehabilitation. Another difference is that the time it takes for the person
to be reconstructed is often shorter than it is for adults, but there
are minors who continually find themselves in trouble with the law.
Juvenile Crime Defense
Even if a minor loses the desire to act the way they did as a child, those
acts can affect the rest of their life. If you have been arrested for
a juvenile crime, this can cause problems that will affect the rest of
your life. If your child is a minor who has been charged, as a parent
you will want to do whatever is in your power to assure them a profitable
future. A minor considered to be a juvenile delinquent could be treated
without respect by law enforcement through the whole process. As a juvenile,
from the time you are arrested by a police officer to prosecution, you
will be treated in an aggressive manner, but
Flanagan & Associates is prepared to use the same aggressive technique to advocate on your behalf.
