Legal Advocates for Juvenile Offenses in Wheaton, IL
For a child under the age of 18, a single conviction can lead to a lifetime of obstacles and forfeited opportunities, depending on the nature of the offense. This is a situation that our attorneys take very seriously and we are prepared to do everything possible to assist you and your family in pursuing a more positive outcome.
Most charges against minors in Illinois are brought within the structure of the juvenile court system. Compared to the “normal” criminal system, the State’s juvenile courts are more focused on rehabilitation and education as opposed to punishment. Still, sentences handed down by juvenile courts can be serious and have a dramatic impact on a young person’s life.
At Davi Law Group, we are equipped to help juvenile defendants facing a wide variety of charges, including:
- Traffic Violations: Young drivers are especially susceptible to charges of aggravated speeding and reckless driving;
- Juvenile Theft: The seriousness of charges related to retail theft, shoplifting, burglary, and other property crimes often depends on the value of the property involved;
- Juvenile Drug Crimes: Convictions related to possession of marijuana, cocaine, or heroin, possession of drug paraphernalia, or distribution of drugs can result in severe penalties;
- Underage Drinking: In addition to criminal charges, a minor charged with underage drinking or possessing a fake ID may have his or her driving privileges suspended as well; and
- Other Juvenile Offenses: Including assault, battery, criminal trespass, and vandalism.
