Protecting The Future Of Your Child
Juvenile charges prompt parents to consider the potential effects on their child’s future. When your teenager faces charges, the fate of their college prospects or future job opportunities can be in question.
A conviction may affect the college application process. However, many juvenile convictions are generally civil in nature. This means that their impact on future employment may be minimal.
Implications For Being Tried As An Adult
While a juvenile conviction typically avoids much of the consequences that an adult conviction has, there are future considerations to keep in mind. If your child eventually commits a crime as an adult, the judge may have access to a juvenile court record. This is true even after an expungement.
Additionally, adult court, rather than juvenile court, may try several crimes involving minors. Age, history in juvenile court and the severity of the crime are all factors that the court considers when deciding whether to try the case in criminal or juvenile court.
