Juvenile Crime Law
If you are a parent or guardian, it can be devastating to have a minor you love convicted or arrested of a crime. Minors are quicker to act on impulse without thinking of the consequences and these impulses can put them in trouble with the juvenile crime law. It is important to protect your loved one’s interests and future by hiring an experienced juvenile defense lawyer.
Although a type of criminal law, juvenile crime law only deals with under-age individuals, who are treated very differently than adults in criminal law, and usually have their own courts of law. Maryland recognizes that minors typically lack the understanding and consequences of their actions. This lack of maturity compelled Maryland to set up a separate court and penal system which focuses more on rehabilitation than punishment. Our juvenile lawyers can help defendants and their families understand juvenile crime law.
The past couple years there has been a disturbing trend in which more serious juvenile cases have been moved into the adult court system. This process has completely negated the intent of the juvenile crime law. The adult courts usually hand down harsher punishments on undeveloped minors.
If your minor has been arrested or convicted of a crime, it is of the utmost importance to hire a juvenile defense lawyer, who has knowledge of juvenile crime law to protect the rights of your minor and keep them in the juvenile system.
