A Child in Trouble with the Law: When the Unthinkable Becomes a Reality
Your child is precious to you. When you bring him or her home from the hospital that first time, you never imagine that your child could get into trouble of any kind—much less with the law. But it happens. And I know you feel like a house being rocked to its foundation when you get that phone call from the police. The last thing you need to do is fight this on your own without the help of an experienced Nashville juvenile offenses attorney.
Juvenile law and juvenile crimes can be extremely difficult to understand. What kind of offenses can a juvenile be accused of committing in Tennessee?
Certain status offenses that are against the law because of your child’s age; a few examples of these are
- Underage drinking and violating curfew
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI), violent crimes like assault, and drug-related crimes
Depending on your child’s case and the severity of the crime, he or she could face being charged as an adult. Parents long to protect their children, and I know that you are no different. You want the best possible representation for your child because, and I cannot be any plainer than this….you do not want an inexperienced attorney handling your child’s future.
