DJS Intake Interview
We have represented many juveniles at the DJS Intake stage, often successfully avoiding prosecution.
We have succesfully argued many felony cases in which juveniles were charged as adults, and had those cases removed to Juvenile Court. Whether you are eligible for this depends upon many factors including your age and the seriousness of the offense and circumstances.
Even though misdemeanor offenses are less serious, if prosecuted they could still land you in detention, on home electronic monitoring (HEM) or on supervised probation.
Just because you're charged with a criminal or serious traffic offense as a juvenile, it doesn't mean you should be found responsible. You are entitled to a bench trial (judge only) to determine your guilt or innocence. We'd be happy to discuss your options with you. We handle all tyoes of felony criminal defense, and if we can't answer your questions, we'll do some research or find someone who can answer them.
