Juvenile crimes in the State of Texas are NOT treated the same as adult crimes. The purpose of the juvenile justice system is to rehabilitate, not to punish. The laws that govern juvenile crimes are completely different than those that govern adult crimes. Many lawyers do not know this. There are a multitude of avenues available to you if your child has been charged with a juvenile crime. Many of these avenues do not include your child being adjudicated for the crime. This is important for you to know and the best opportunity you have to achieve these results is to hire a Juvenile Defense expert.
