Juvenile drug charges could ruin your child's future

As a parent, you probably do everything you can to support your children and encourage them toward the best possible future. However, the teenage years are fraught with temptation, combined with a physiological deficit in understanding long-term risks and consequences.

Does my child have any alternatives to jail time?

Many parents fear that sooner or later their child will be charged with a crime and face jail time. When that fear becomes a reality, it can easily cause panic, which is natural. The good news is that, with effective representation, your child does not have to face jail time, even in the face of a conviction.

Juvenile drug offenses: How to help your child

Raising teenagers and tweens is difficult business. At a certain point in your children's life, their classmates and age peers begin exerting more influence over their behavior than you do. Often, parents feel helpless, as all their attempts to talk to or discipline their rebellious child are rebuffed or ignored. Even the best parents can find themselves and their child in the legally precarious situation of their child being accused of possession or consumption of a drug, such as marijuana or popular synthetic designer drugs like Molly, if their friends and peers are doing the same thing. If your child is facing criminal charges related to a drug offense, you need to hire an expert criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

How does the justice system treat juveniles with disabilities?

When the special education system fails minors they often end up incarcerated. Although youth with disabilities are underrepresented in the general population, they are much more likely to be sent to detention and incarceration facilities. At least one third of youthful offenders arrested have a disability. Some researchers argue that it is as high as 70 percent. These incarcerated minors have anything from emotional to learning disabilities.
