Juvenile Offenses

Pennsylvania Juvenile Delinquency Lawyer

The juvenile court system is very different from adult criminal court. Juvenile court has its own set of laws and procedures that govern the way court is conducted. It is important to hire a juvenile delinquency lawyer that is familiar with delinquency proceedings and the Rules of Juvenile Court so that your son or daughter’s rights are not infringed upon. Although the purpose of the juvenile justice system is not to punish but to rehabilitate, juveniles that have committed delinquent acts may be sent to a juvenile detention facility in lieu of adult prison. Most counties have placement programs for delinquent children with drug and alcohol problems or have committed sex crimes. Juveniles that have committed less serious crimes may be allowed to remain in their home under the supervision of a juvenile probation officer.
