For many years, the rule of thumb has been something along the lines of “you’re fairly safe from conviction until you turn 18.” That is a myth and it’s now time to overturn that. In today’s society, it’s possible for a juvenile to be charged as an adult and the convictions can carry on through their 18th birthday and beyond. They can hinder their admittance to higher educational institutes, prevent them from acquiring certain employment opportunities, and restrict their freedoms through probation. If you need a Greeley criminal lawyer to defend your child and preserve their freedoms, request a free appointment with Peek Law Firm today. We give the same degree of aggression and tenacity to juvenile charges as we do to the most serious of adult cases.
