Underage Crimes

Underage crimes are a very serious matter. When criminal accusations are made against your child or a loved one, it’s completely natural to begin worrying about how a momentary lapse in judgment could affect their future including their dreams and aspirations. Maybe your child, or a loved one, merely did “something stupid” and now he or she is under arrest. Or maybe a misunderstanding occurred, but because of the juvenile’s age and immaturity, law enforcement was able to take advantage of their vulnerability. The Law Offices of Jessica Mishali, P.A. can help bring you the peace of mind and solution that you need.

The most common crimes committed by juveniles consist of shoplifting, possession of a fake ID, disorderly conduct, traffic violations, drug charges, property destruction, assault, and battery. If your child has been charged with a crime, you need to seek the advice of an experienced juvenile criminal attorney immediately. It is important to hire an attorney who can effectively handle juvenile criminal cases in order to reduce or eliminate criminal charges placed against your child. A skilled attorney like Jessica Mishali can fight aggressively to get the criminal charge dismissed or reduced and help you and your child to avoid the serious consequences of a conviction.

While the criminal court system is designed to punish offenders, the juvenile justice system is designed to treat juvenile offenders through rehabilitation. The juvenile justice system gives broad discretion to police, judges and prosecutors in their treatment of juvenile offenders.
