When your child faces an arrest you can feel like a failed parent. This is where a Juvenile Defense Attorney can help.
The Connecticut juvenile justice system operates differently from the adult court system. Not every attorney is familiar with the best way to advocate for your child. Most importantly, you should know that juvenile proceedings are conducted in closed courtrooms. This enables you to be sure no one will find out what your child is charged with or find out how the case resolves. One thing many people may not know until faced with defending their child is that children are not entitled to a jury. In these situations, a judge will determine the guilt or innocence of your child.
When your child is facing a juvenile charge, you need a lawyer who knows the laws. A lawyer who knows defenses to the adult criminal code can help your child. You need someone who knows the resources and possibilities of juvenile proceedings. This is where a juvenile defense attorney comes in. Juvenile cases could require your child to be detained in a juvenile detention facility. This is because kids are not entitled to bail like adults are. It is important to get an attorney involved as soon as possible to fight this possibility.
