Juvenile Criminal Defense In Union County

In general, the juvenile court system is geared toward rehabilitation and intervention in the hopes of preventing young people from reoffending later as adults. However, young people who do not acknowledge the wrong of their actions or who are charged with serious crimes run the risk of being locked up in juvenile detention or charged as an adult. As a result, if your teenage son or daughter has been arrested as a juvenile, it's important to work with an attorney who understands the juvenile criminal court system. At the criminal defense law office of Mark M. Cheser, we work closely with juveniles in helping them get a second chance. Depending on the charges involved, it may be possible to reduce the charges or sentence against a teen in exchange for probation, community service, and enrollment in an alcohol or drug education program.
