Everyone makes mistakes. From driving under the influence or public intoxication to disorderly conduct and reckless driving, minor offenses can have a major impact on your future if they are not handled properly by a professional criminal law attorney.

Child delinquency is when a minor under the age of 18 commits a criminal act. Mistakes happen, and whether it be from peer pressure or their own lapse in judgement, the important part is how they learn from it. With a misdemeanor lawyer on your side, your child can learn from the mistake, make amends, and move on with his or her life. Typical ways to handle this situation include:

  • Substance abuse treatment
  • One-on-one or family counseling
  • Issuing a warning
  • Having the child held and notifying the parents to pick them up

When adults do something wrong, it is considered a criminal act, and the consequences are more severe than a warning or counseling. Depending on the severity of the crime, you may have to pay fines, attend mandatory classes, or spend time in jail as punishment. Often, these offenses are something we do not even think about on a daily basis, so it may come as a surprise when the charges are issued. If you are in a hurry to get somewhere, for example, it is easy to go a little too fast and get pulled over for reckless driving.
