Types of juvenile offenses

When juveniles commit criminal offenses, they must be held accountable. According to state law, a delinquent act is an act designated as a crime, whether by the local ordinances of Tennessee — or of another state if the act occurred there — or under federal law.

If your child is arrested for a curfew violation, he or she may face little more than community service. However, if the police arrest your son or daughter for assault or robbery, he or she may face additional penalties, including fines and jail time. Our Knoxville defense lawyers can passionately defend your child if he or she faces charges for all types of juvenile offenses, including:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Local ordinances
  • Traffic offenses
  • Probation violation
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Failure to appear
  • Harassment
  • Evading arrest
  • Reckless endangerment

This is by no means a comprehensive list of the juvenile crime cases our firm handles. Our lawyers fight aggressively on behalf of juveniles accused of crimes that range from kidnapping to robbery of a motor vehicle. Experienced and highly qualified, we look out for your child’s best interests at every turn.

Juvenile crime penalties

Your child faces any number of penalties based on the type of crime the prosecution alleges he or she committed. If the police arrest your child for a DUI, his or her license may be suspended. More serious offenses are punishable by fines, jail time, probation and community service. However, by hiring an experienced lawyer, you can significantly improve your son’s or daughter’s chances of receiving a reduced sentence.
