What are Juvenile Crimes?

Tad Nelson has been defending juveniles in both adult and family court for many years. While the language of family court, where juveniles are usually tried, differs from that used for adults, the criminal charges are the same. Tad Nelson has seen every sort of juvenile crime, including drug possession, underage drinking, sex crimes, and property crimes such as vandalism, and trespassing.

Consequences of Juvenile Charges

The consequences of a juvenile criminal charge are progressive. Once a child has been adjudicated as a delinquent (rather than being convicted in adult court) the penalties for subsequent crimes increase. You do not want your child to be raised in the justice system. That is why it is critical to have an experienced criminal defense attorney defending your child.

Tad Nelson works to develop reduced charges and alternative punishments, lessening the chance that your child will spend time in a detention facility, or face stiffer penalties for mistakes later in life. Contact Tad Nelson, a knowledgeable and caring juvenile crime lawyer. He helps parents face the stress of having a child charged with a crime.
