Juvenile Offenses

Juvenile Offense Attorneys in Stuart

Know a Child Accused of a Juvenile Offense? Get an Attorney You Can Trust.

Juvenile crimes are illegal activities that are committed by minors who are below the age of 18 years old. Juvenile charges are treated much differently than adult charges and are handled by the Juvenile Division of the Circuit Court. There is a separate set of rules and procedures for juvenile charges and juvenile sentencing.

Whether or not this is a child’s first encounter with the legal system, Lance P. Richard, P.A. can help you understand your options. We understand the need to represent juvenile clients as diligently as we do our adult clients, since juvenile crimes can affect a child’s future. Lance P. Richard, P.A. has extensive experience in navigating the juvenile court system with minors charged with serious crimes and has defended numerous high profile juvenile cases. Lance P. Richard, P.A. has been interviewed as an expert in Florida juvenile law on CNN, MSNBC, and Court TV.

Criminal law problems affecting minors continue to have consequences for many years, even after their 18th birthday. There is a misconception that past transgressions go away after a child becomes a legal adult, but that is not the case. If you fail to have professional legal representation, the consequences could affect your child for years to come.

Lance P. Richard, P.A. represents juveniles charged with crimes involving:

  • Drug offenses
  • Traffic tickets
  • Burglary
  • Sexual offenses
  • Criminal mischief and vandalism
  • DUI
  • Juvenile robbery
  • Shoplifting
  • Assault and battery
  • Weapons charge

If your child has been charged with a juvenile crime, retain an experienced criminal defense attorney. By retaining the services of a skilled Stuart juvenile offense attorney, you are ensuring that your child will receive the legal representation, advice, and counsel they need to protect their future.
