Children aged ten through sixteen years old can be charged with crimes and are prosecuted in juvenile court. Juvenile court proceedings are not open to the public.
Once a child turns seventeen he or she is prosecuted as an adult in circuit court and his or her court record is open to the public.
If your child has been referred for charges it is important to consult with an experienced Juvenile Delinquency attorney as it may be possible to avoid charges being filed against your child.
Attorney Jessie Weber has experience dealing with juvenile cases and can help your child achieve the best result possible.
