Do Not Take Juvenile Charges Lightly
Once a child enters the system, it can be difficult to get out without qualified legal counsel. A juvenile record has a way of following a child and can impact his or her academic and employment opportunities in the future. Juvenile court follows different procedures and rules than adult court – see our Juvenile FAQs page for details. While the juvenile system can be difficult in a number of ways, there are also potential breaks.
In some cases, we are able to obtain an informal adjustment for a juvenile client. An informal adjustment means that a juvenile does not have a conviction on his or her record. While each case is different and no particular result can be guaranteed in a particular case, we do have a strong record of results in juvenile cases.
Expungement of a Juvenile Record
Many people, even some attorneys, do not know that juvenile records can be expunged. Attorney Steve Minert has experience helping clients expunge juvenile records. An expungement is available in most cases after a juvenile has turned 18. Contact a Boise juvenile crimes defense lawyer at Minert Law Office to learn more.
