Clearwater Juvenile Crime Lawyer

Charged with a juvenile offense in Clearwater or Tampa?

If your family member is facing juvenile offenses, a Clearwater criminal defense attorney can be the first step to protecting their rights and their future. Juvenile offenses are committed by individuals under the age of eighteen. Although minors, juveniles can still face serious legal consequences, including conviction and arrest. Unfortunately, this criminal record can continue to affect them well into their adult lives.

Juvenile Offenses & Traffic Violations

Juvenile offenses are considered adult offenses in traffic court. This is important to keep in mind because many traffic violations are punishable with jail time. Although uncommon, a minor could be sentenced to jail for offenses such as driving without a license, driving on a suspended license, and driving while under the influence (DUI).

If a minor receives a conviction for a misdemeanor traffic ticket, he or she will have a criminal record, affecting their ability to attend college, receive financial aid, and get a job.

It's important for any young adult accused of juvenile charges to seek the advice of a Clearwater criminal defense attorney. The outcome of the case could have long-term negative ramifications.
