Violation of Probation
If my child is facing criminal charges, what should I do? How does the juvenile system treat the
accused? Does my child have the right to an attorney? What will happen to my kid? Will he/she be
taken to jail? Will my child have a record? How will this incident affect my child's future?
These questions are going through your mind if your child has been arrested and charged with a crime.
At the The Orlando Law Firm P.L. we completely understand what you are going through. We understand your concern about the future of your child and the important decision that you are facing this very moment.
Indeed many juvenile charges can have long-term effect on the future of your child. For instance, if
your child is charged and convicted of a sex crime, he or she can be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of his or her life. Additionally, while Juvenile records should be kept away from the public, the police and the State Attorney still have access to them.
Remember that your child has options and constitutional rights. We will provide an in-depth analysis of the case against your child and advise of the options that are available to you. We will look at potential constitutional issues and defenses that could available to your child's case. Keep in mind that juveniles do not have the right to a jury trial. It is the judge that serves as a trial of fact. Contact us to find out more about the differences between the juvenile system and the adult criminal system in the state of Florida.
While the juvenile system is designed to rehabilitate children, many times children are placed in
government run programs away from their families. Oftentimes being placed in such programs might not be in the best interest of the child and might not address the individuals child's problems
