Arlington Defense Attorneys Fighting Juvenile Drug Charges
There is a line between youthful transgressions and serious trouble. When a child is arrested or charged with a juvenile drug crime, that line has been crossed. The State of Texas handles juvenile crimes with different rules than adult crimes. The penalties for a juvenile convicted of a drug crime are different than they would be if the child were an adult.
Juvenile crimes are different, but they are no less serious than any other criminal prosecution. If your child thinks that juvenile criminal proceedings are a laughing matter, a wake-up call is in order.
At Goza & Carreras, Attorneys at Law, PC, we fight for the best possible outcome for our clients. In cases of juvenile drug charges, the best outcome includes protecting your child’s present and future. Our Texas juvenile defense lawyers have 35-plus years of combined criminal defense experience. We know just how serious criminal law violations can be for juveniles and for the adults they will become.
Drug Offenses, Addiction and Culture
Even if you take your child’s case seriously, he or she may not. Juvenile offenders rarely appreciate the gravity of the situation. Children may not believe in drug addiction. They might think it happens to others, but not to them. The drug culture may be attractive to them because they don’t understand where it leads, or they don’t care.
Our attorneys have the experience to help your child in and out of the courtroom. We work to help kids accused of juvenile drug crimes appreciate just how much trouble they are facing.
Juvenile Drug Crimes Defense
Parents often express concern if they believe their children are running with a bad crowd. That concern can turn into alarm when things escalate. Maybe you find drugs or drug paraphernalia in your child’s room. Maybe you notice that prescription drugs have gone missing from your medicine cabinet. Maybe cash or valuables have gone missing. When law enforcement gets involved, you need legal protection for your son or daughter.
