Common Types of Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile crimes encompass a wide range of offenses, including but not limited to:

  • Shoplifting/Theft: Theft or shoplifting can have severe consequences for juveniles, impacting their prospects and opportunities.
  • Underage Drinking: The act of possessing or consuming alcohol by minors is a prevalent offense that may result in legal consequences.
  • Drug Possession: Charges related to drug possession or distribution can have long-lasting implications for juveniles, affecting their education, employment, and personal relationships.
  • Assault and Battery: Acts of violence, including assault and battery, are taken seriously by the legal system and may result in severe penalties.
  • Vandalism: Willful destruction of property, such as graffiti or property damage, is considered a juvenile offense with potential legal consequences.

What are the Penalties for Juvenile Crimes in Georgia?

In Georgia, penalties for juvenile crimes vary depending on the nature and severity of the offense. Potential consequences may include:

  • Probation: Juveniles may be placed on probation, requiring adherence to specific conditions set by the court, such as community service or counseling.
  • Juvenile Detention: Serious offenses could lead to being placed in a juvenile detention facility for a specified period.
  • Fines: Monetary fines may be imposed as punishment for certain juvenile offenses.
  • Counseling or Rehabilitation Programs: Courts may mandate participation in counseling or rehabilitation programs to address underlying issues contributing to delinquent behavior.
  • Juvenile Records: Juvenile criminal records can have lasting implications, potentially affecting future educational and employment opportunities.

Defenses Against Juvenile Crimes Charges

Our experienced attorneys employ various strategies to defend against juvenile crime charges, including:

  • Lack of Intent: Demonstrating that the juvenile lacked the intent to commit the alleged offense.
  • Alibi: Providing evidence or witness testimony to establish the juvenile's presence elsewhere during the incident.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: Challenging the legality of the search or seizure leading to the discovery of incriminating evidence.
  • Self-Defense: Asserting that the juvenile acted in self-defense or defense of others.
  • Mistaken Identity: Presenting evidence to refute allegations of involvement in the crime based on mistaken identity.

Will My Child be Tried as an Adult?

In certain circumstances, juveniles may be eligible for transfer to adult court, depending on factors such as the offense's severity and the juvenile's prior criminal history. However, our attorneys diligently advocate for our young clients and pursue alternatives to adult prosecution whenever feasible. We explore all legal avenues to ensure juveniles are allowed for rehabilitation and a fresh start.
