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.
Why have legal representation for juvenile offenses?
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. It is much easier to
avoid these legal consequences before the case has been resolved by consulting
with an attorney as early as possible.
