Aurora Juvenile Criminal Defense Lawyer

At the Law Offices of David Lee, we understand that your child is your first priority, and our goal is to protect your child's future. Being a Juvenile defendant in a juvenile delinquency petition, can be an emotionally draining and intimidating experience, without the help of an experienced Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney. Juveniles, like adults, can be charged with Felonies or Misdemeanors, and can face the possibility of incarceration in the Juvenile Department of Corrections. In addition, for more serious offenses, such as Murder or Criminal Sexual Assault, your child can be charged as an adult.

Juvenile Delinquency proceedings are different from Adult Criminal Proceedings, in the following ways:

1. A "Juvenile" is considered anyone under the age of 18.

2. The Court will require the parents of the juvenile defendant, to attend each and every court appearance.

3. Juvenile delinquency proceedings are not open to the public.

4. Sentences of Court Supervision for criminal offenses are not available if the Prosecutor objects.

5. Juveniles do not have a "Right" to a trial by Jury.

6. Juveniles can be incarcerated in the Juvenile Department of Corrections until the age of 21.
