Understanding the Juvenile Justice System in Florida
In Florida, when an individual under the age of 18 has committed a crime, the case is usually handled by the Juvenile Justice System. Unlike the adult Criminal Justice System, the Juvenile Justice System focuses on rehabilitation instead of punishment. Our Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney is highly skilled in handling juvenile cases and can help you and your child navigate through every step of the legal procedure.
We are experienced and have represented juveniles in cases such as:
- Disorderly conduct
- Assault and battery
- Misdemeanor as well as felony drug violations
Opting for a Juvenile Diversion Program
Our juvenile crime lawyer in Fort Lauderdale can determine if your child’s case qualifies for a Juvenile Diversion Program offered by the state. These programs often last as little as a few months to a year. Upon your child's successful completion of these programs, the juvenile delinquency charge will be dismissed. If a Juvenile Diversion Program, however, is not possible for your child, The Legal Justice Center will protect all your child's Constitutional rights and will aggressively defend your child.
