JUVENILE DELINQUENCY - HAS YOUR SON, DAUGHTER, OR GRANDCHILD BEEN CHARGED WITH A CRIME?
If you are reading this website, you may be a nervous teenager facing criminal charges and a suspension from school. Or you may be a parent or grandparent concerned about the future of a child.
Juveniles under 18 years of age can be charged with nearly any crime in the Pennsylvania Crimes Code that could apply to an adult. Under certain circumstances, a juvenile may be charged as an adult. Unfortunately, many situations that were once handled by school administrators are being reported to police officers, who file serious misdemeanor and felony charges against juveniles. As an example, a teenager who pushes his teacher may now be charged with Felony Aggravated Assault, or two kids in a schoolyard fight might find themselves facing more serious consequences than a suspension from school.
If your child or loved one is charged with a Juvenile Crime, please contact Juvenile Delinquency Defense AttorneyDave Zuckerman of the Zuckerman Law Firm, LLC at 412-447-5580 for a free consultation. Your child deserves to have the same effective representation that an adult would receive.
In appropriate circumstances, your child may eligible for a diversionary program and reduction of charges, including:
- Payment of restitution and completion of community service for a withdrawal of charges;
- Negotiation of a Consent Decree, which will enable your child to avoid a juvenile record.
To accommodate school and work schedules, early morning, weekend and evening appointments are available. Call 412-447-5580.
