Juvenile Crime Lawyer in Cleveland, Ohio
Defending Minors from Criminal Convictions
No matter your age or your walk of life, being arrested for a crime is
a terrifying experience. Such an experience is even more terrifying for
young people who are facing charges. If you are under the age of 18 and
are facing criminal charges, or if your minor child has been arrested
for a crime, Friedman & Nemecek, LLC Attorneys at Law can help.
Whether the charges are related to an
OVI, a violent crime, a theft crime or other offense, you need to do everything
possible to protect your child. The criminal process and sentencing for
minors is different than it is for adults; juvenile charges should be
defended by an attorney that is highly experienced and has a record of
success in the juvenile court system. Serious violent crimes may be moved
to adult court, which is far more dangerous than juvenile court. All of
the actions of our criminal trial attorney are geared to protect the rights
and interests of the accused.
How Are Juvenile Cases Different?
When an adult is arrested for a crime, he or she is usually placed in jail
until a hearing takes place or until released on bail. Minors will be
placed in a juvenile detention center when accused of a more serious crime.
Young offenders who are convicted will be sentenced to juvenile correctional
facilities, rather than incarcerated in county jails or state prisons,
which prevents them from being detained with adult offenders.
In some cases, however, juveniles will be tried and penalized as adults.
It is imperative that you speak with a Cleveland juvenile crime attorney
from our firm before the case progresses any further through the system.
Our early involvement could be a pivotal factor in the final outcome of the case.
