The law has a different view toward minors accused of criminal offenses. In theory, the system is dedicated to rehabilitation, rather than punishment, of juvenile offenders. However, a case still has serious consequences. If your child has been accused of a juvenile offense, you have the right to enlist a juvenile defense attorney to try to avoid or minimize those consequences. At Purdy & Ring, we are committed to keeping your child’s future options wide open, unhindered by the repercussions of a juvenile criminal record.
We can defend against all charges, including:
• Drunk Driving/OWI
• Retail Theft/Shoplifting
• Criminal Sexual Conduct
• Statutory Rape
• Minor in Possession of Alcohol (MIP)
There are many situations where a child under 17 could be prosecuted as a juvenile. However, serious criminal offenses sometimes lead to a child being charged as an adult. Our practice is committed to preventing this from happening. We will work hard to keep the case in juvenile court in order to obtain the most favorable outcome. If a case is removed to adult court, we have the experience to stand up for the rights of your child.
