A Strategic Partner In Your Child’s Defense
No child deserves to have their future compromised because of a mistake. Parents can take some solace in the knowledge that, in Texas, juvenile charges are meant to rehabilitate rather than to punish. However, the process can still be tremendously stressful, and serious consequences are not out of the question.
Despite a focus on rehabilitation, penalties for legal infractions by a minor may include substantial fines, detention sentences or probation with strict terms. To minimize the chance of serious consequences, it is wise to speak with a knowledgeable juvenile defense attorney as promptly as possible. At The Lugo Law Firm, PLLC, we help families through the stress of juvenile charges while fighting to protect their child’s future.
In Texas, juveniles can be taken into custody for any criminal offense for which an adult can be arrested. Common examples of juvenile charges include:
- Drug offenses
- Sexting and other “cybercrimes”
- Traffic violations
- Underage DUI
- Criminal trespass
Parents should be aware that children as young as 14 years old may be certified as adults in the face of certain criminal charges, including sex crimes. It is imperative that you work with an attorney who understands the nuances of the juvenile system and how to advocate within it. We will fight to protect your child and their future.
