Ensuring Your Children's Rights & Future are Defended
Don’t let a juvenile mistake jeopardize your child’s future. At Beall & Mitchell LLC, our Wichita criminal defense attorneys provide experienced juvenile crime defense for a wide range of offenses, including sex crimes, property crimes, drug crimes and violent crimes.
Talk to Our Defense Team First
As with defendants in any criminal case, juvenile defendants have the right to remain silent. Encourage your child to exercise this right. Talking to the police will probably only provide the officers with more information to support a conviction.
Don’t try to handle the case alone. If you try to protect your child’s interests alone, you start at a serious disadvantage. When you walk into a courtroom, everyone else is familiar with the process. Your child’s future is too important to test your own abilities. Count on one of our experienced lawyers to handle your child’s representation.
Juvenile Offenses Can Have Serious Long-Term Consequences
Even seemingly small offenses today can lead to serious consequences later. If a minor is caught with a minimal amount of marijuana, he or she may lose eligibility for student loans for school. Furthermore, a second drug offense in the future could lead to a felony conviction. A conviction for statutory rape may require the child to appear on the sex offender registry for years to come. A seemingly minor shoplifting or vandalism charge may restrict future job opportunities for your child.
Sometimes kids make mistakes. It’s part of growing up. As a concerned parent, it’s important to make sure that the consequences of these mistakes don’t negatively impact the rest of your child’s life.
