Tennessee Juvenile Defense Attorneys
If your child has been accused of a crime and is facing juvenile delinquency charges, protect their rights by retaining an experienced juvenile defense lawyer. While a juvenile offense may not seem like a serious matter, the result of a juvenile record can have a serious effect on the future welfare of a child.
If your child is found guilty of a juvenile offense, he or she will face a number of serious challenges. One of the consequences of a juvenile offense is probation. Your son or daughter’s probation officer may have the right to contact school officials and teachers to determine if your child is making positive progress at school. Certainly, this type of intervention does not create a positive image of your child.
A second concern is the effect on your child’s future educational opportunities. Colleges can and do ask about juvenile records. A conviction for a violent juvenile offense, drug offense or other serious offense could limit your son or daughter’s eligibility for the school of their choice.
In cases involving very serious offenses, your child could be sent to a juvenile detention facility or ordered to undergo extensive counseling or community service.
