    What happens after an arrest?

    The juvenile court system specifically handles situations where a minor or youth commits a crime. Unlike a criminal justice system that will bring formal charges to an adult, the juvenile court will accuse an offender of committing a delinquent act.

  • How do I know if my child is eligible for juvenile court?

    How do I know if my child is eligible for juvenile court?

    In most states, a young person is considered to be “juvenile” if they are under the age of 18. The state of Wyoming recognizes the maximum age of 19 years. In some circumstances, however, the courts may try an underage individual in adult criminal court.

  • What penalties are associated with a juvenile crime?

    What penalties are associated with a juvenile crime?

    We understand that a primary concern for many parents is that their child will be subject to serious penalties. Juvenile courts differ from other criminal courts in that juvenile courts will have different types of penalties to choose from. Penalties can include placement in juvenile detention facilities, house arrest, probation, fines, counseling, and more.

  • Do I need an attorney to represent me?

    Do I need an attorney to represent me?

    Even if you think that your specific case is too incriminating, do not make the mistake of thinking that you do not have options available to you or your child. Working with a juvenile defense attorney who has trial experience and criminal law knowledge can only improve your chances of securing a reduction in charges, or in some cases, acquittal or complete dismissal.
