Consequences of a criminal charge for Juveniles in Arizona

Although the juvenile justice system in Arizona focuses on rehabilitation, the consequences of a criminal charge against persons under the age of 18 can be serious. If a juvenile commits a minor offense, they can be required to complete community service, go through counseling or write a letter of apology. On the other hand, if a juvenile faces serious charges, they may be sent to a juvenile correctional facility or possibly transferred to adult court where they could face much more severe punishments. In order to avoid unnecessary consequences that could leave a juvenile with a criminal record, I highly suggest that they hire an attorney that focuses on juvenile crimes.
