The Juvenile Court handles those cases where crimes have been committed by persons under the age of 18, and the state has chosen to treat them as juveniles. Juvenile crimes include vandalism, arson, burglary, theft, sexual abuse, rape, breaking and entering, drug abuse, possession of controlled substances and physical abuse. If a child is 14 or older and charged with a crime punisheable by life in prison or death, their case goes to circuit court.
Juvenile cases are treated differently and it is important that you understand the different terms, options, and possibilites of being charged in Juvenile Court. At our offices, we will explain these possibilities, and provide you the necessary guidance and representation to help in assuring that this mistake that was made will not have a negative permanent effect.Contact a Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney to Start Discussing Your Options
