Cadillac Juvenile Offenses Attorney
Young people make mistakes – it’s part of growing up. Unfortunately, some mistakes can lead to criminal charges. Suddenly a youthful indiscretion becomes a lifetime record that can follow the child into adulthood and disrupt his or her life. If your child is in trouble, it is important to work with an experienced attorney who knows the criminal justice system well.
At the Law Office of Mark R. Mitchell, P.C., we have more than 25 years of experience in criminal defense, including juvenile issues. We know that it is common for children to get into trouble, and that it doesn’t mean they are bad kids. Most often, they are influenced by friends or others involved in bad behavior. It is not a reflection of how the child was raised.
Experienced Attorney Handling A Variety Of Criminal Charges
Some juvenile crimes are called “status offenses” – the behavior is only illegal because of the person’s age. Others are similar to adult charges, and these offenses can carry heavy penalties. For serious offenses, the sentence could be detention in a juvenile facility up to the age of 21. Even less serious crimes, however, can have major repercussions on a child’s future.
Cadillac juvenile offenses lawyer Mark R. Mitchell represents children facing a variety of charges, such as:
- Curfew violations
- Underage possession of alcohol
- Shoplifting and other theft crimes
- Drug possession or sale
- Assault and other violent crimes
We are here to provide strong defenses and help children move into adulthood with a clear record when possible. It’s important to keep your child on the right path, and we are here to help you do that.
