Your Child Does Not Have to Suffer Harsh Penalties

Juvenile courts for children less than 17 years old are not like adult courts in that juvenile courts work to provide a system that offers rehabilitation opportunities for youth. Juvenile court judges and juvenile case workers generally provide young offenders another chance when it is clear that a youth is not indifferent to the harm caused and that they are willing to acknowledge they have made a mistake.

Juvenile courts have flexibility to consider your child's circumstances if the case comes to sentencing. It is important to keep in mind, however, that your child could face severe penalties without knowledgeable legal representation. In many cases, Attorney Nathe has successfully obtained court supervision for juvenile offenders. Under supervision, the delinquent act will not go on the child's record as long as he or she complies with the provisions set up by the juvenile court and stays out of trouble.

Sometimes, supervision is not granted by the court due to the level of the crime. If the judge does not grant supervision, a juvenile delinquency adjudication may include:

  • Up to 30 days in a juvenile detention facility
  • Probation
  • Commitment to the Department of Corrections
