Children charged with criminal offenses don't only affect the child who is charged; it affects their entire family. Children who are alleged to have committed criminal offenses are not immune from incarceration, probation and could be assessed fines, costs and restitution for their alleged offenses. Juveniles can be charged with felony and misdemeanor offenses just like adults. However, the judicial process is different than in adult court.
These cases are commonly kept confidential from the public to protect the identity of the child charged with a criminal offense. This is why having an attorney to represent a person charged as juvenile is extremely important. An attorney like Travis Strobach not only has the knowledge and experience to defend your child from juvenile criminal charges, but he will make sure they receive the anonymity and understanding they deserve. If a child is found guilty of a criminal offense, they could be sentenced to a fine, probation, treatment or even time in juvenile detention.
These cases can be handled by Attorney Travis Strobach from negotiating an informal process and dismissing charges against your child, to taking the case to trial. Sometimes severe charges or repeat offenders require not just any attorney, but a trial attorney to force the State to negotiate the best deal or prove their case at trial. If a trial is necessary, Travis has conducted juvenile trials in both Missouri and Illinois and has a winning record for his clients!
Travis will be happy to explain the juvenile process to you and your child and what to expect moving forward in their case. Call today for your free consultation (314) 651-9360
