If you are the parent of a child who has been accused of a crime, you may be scared, confused and angry. At Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law, we have helped countless juveniles obtain the desired case outcome to the relief of many parents. In many juvenile crime cases, the punishment is geared towards rehabilitation rather than punishment. Juveniles cannot be jailed for crimes they committed except in rare circumstances.
It is still very important, however, to seek legal assistance as soon as possible for your child. If your child has been accused of a crime you need to speak with a Fort Myers criminal defense attorney immediately.
Even though the justice system is more lenient towards juvenile cases, it does not mean that you should risk appearing in court without an attorney. The penalties for juvenile cases can still be life altering for years to come. We understand that just because someone is young does not mean that he or she is guilty of the crime and have seen innocent children accused of serious crimes. We believe in upholding the rights of our clients no matter what their age is and will stop at nothing to help our clients receive a desirable case outcome.
If you proceed without qualified legal help you could be facing serious penalties such as being held in a juvenile detention center for 6 months, revocation of driving privileges (even if you are not old enough to drive), and a criminal record for up to ten years. If you or your child has been convicted of a juvenile crime, speak with an attorney immediately.
Our defense attorneys have focused on juvenile defense for years. They are extremely well-versed in the juvenile court system and alternative sentencing. Please call immediately if you have any questions.
Contact a Fort Myers Juvenile Defense Attorney today if you have questions regarding your child's juvenile defense case and want answers.
