Juvenile Criminal Defense in New Jersey
Many questions are going through your head at this time: What is going to happen to my child? Will this affect his/her future? Will he/she have to go to jail?
If your child is accused of a crime in New Jersey and will be charged as a juvenile, chances are he/she will be going to Family Court. The punishment here is less severe – if found guilty, your child could face fines, pay for damages to any victims, or perform community service in lieu of restitution. Rarely will your child be sentenced to incarceration.
However, there are rare times that a juvenile may be charged as an adult. If this happens, then your child will be going to Criminal Court. If this happens, then the juvenile can face a stricter conviction which can include prison time. There are advantages and disadvantages of facing either Family or Criminal Court. You need an experienced juvenile criminal defense lawyer to explain the differences. Not only will Mr. Carbone explain the differences between the two but advise your child on which court is most appropriate for his/her case.
