“In juvenile cases I mostly handle dependency and delinquency. Examples of dependency cases include child abuse, child neglect, abandonment, and also situations where the child has been taken from the parents. We seek to get the child reunited with the parents as quickly as we can. The other side of juvenile cases are delinquency charges, which are crimes committed by juveniles. I do a lot of juvenile cases of both types.
Juvenile charges are the same as adult charges, but they are tried in juvenile court because the defendant is under 18. Typical charges are possession, sex crimes, battery (often battery on their own parents), trespassing, burglaries, breaking into homes, cars, and thefts.”
If you have been arrested on any of the following charges, or fear that you may be arrested, contact your Central Florida defense attorney at (407) 862-7110:
Assault: Did you realize that words can be assault, in Florida? Assault includes intentional threats, words, or actions that cause a person to feel afraid of impending violence. It’s not only what you say, but how you say it. Your child can face jail time for these kinds of actions.
Underage DUI: Consuming alcohol by anyone under 21 is illegal in Florida (no exceptions). When someone under 21 is intoxicated and causes an accident, the penalties are harsher. The impact of these penalties can be lifelong. You need an attorney.
If you face any criminal charges in Seminole or Orange County, Mitch can help defend your rights and protect your future. He can also discuss getting your criminal record sealed or expunged.
You may face jail time if you are convicted of a juvenile crime. You may lose your driver’s license. You may face massive fines. Certain jobs, student loans, scholarships, internships, and a host of other opportunities may be lost if convicted of a juvenile crime in Central Florida. Don’t face the consequences without a skilled juvenile criminal defense attorney on your side. Call Mitch (407) 862-7110.
