Brooklyn Juvenile Crimes Attorney
Serious Defense You Can Trust
When a juvenile is arrested or charged with a crime, a decision needs to be made. Will that youngster go down a road of crime and problems? Or will that person receive a second chance and get sent down a better path?
As a Brooklyn juvenile crimes lawyer, Attorney Wilson LaFaurie is dedicated to protecting the rights of juveniles and ensuring their bright futures. At The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, we believe that a juvenile offense does not have to lead your son or daughter into a life of crime. We focus on defending the rights of juveniles and minimizing the impact of this criminal matter.
Types of Juvenile Crime Cases We Handle
A juvenile offense can damage a child's future in many ways. Academic opportunities, scholarship eligibility, and even employment prospects can be severely limited. Our Brooklyn juvenile criminal defense lawyer can build a strong case on your child's behalf and look for ways for your child to be rehabilitated rather than punished.
We employ a tried-and-true strategy that has effectively helped juveniles facing a variety of criminal charges, including:
- Drug crimes, such as marijuana possession
- Drunk driving
- Moving violations
- Property crimes, such as vandalism and graffiti
- Robbery, burglary, and larceny
- Underage drinking
The Adult vs. the Juvenile System
Depending on the circumstances, teenagers may be tried through either the juvenile or the adult court system. There are significant differences between the two. While the adult criminal justice system focuses on punishment—long periods of incarceration, heavy fines, and probation—the juvenile system has a much greater focus on rehabilitation. Juveniles are often given opportunities and resources to grow and to reform their behavior.
New York law defines a juvenile as someone who is older than 7 but younger than 16. Anyone who falls between these ages is eligible to be tried in juvenile court. For certain serious crimes, however, children aged 13, 14, or 15 can be transferred to adult court.
When you work with The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, we will do everything possible to ensure that your child is tried under the juvenile courts, as well as work to minimize or eliminate the penalties he or she is facing. Attorney Wilson LaFaurie will stand by your family throughout the entire legal process, providing insightful legal guidance and helping you and your child make decisions that can most benefit his or her future.
