Compassionate, Effective Defense For Juvenile Crime Charges
Depending on the seriousness of the offense, a criminal conviction can have a devastating impact on a juvenile’s future. Juveniles can be charged with all the same crimes as adults and are frequently subject to many of the same penalties. If your child has been charged with any type of crime, contact an experienced defense attorney immediately.
At the law firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates, we serve clients throughout the greater Cincinnati area in all types of juvenile crime cases. You can rely on us to fight aggressively to protect your child’s rights and seek the best possible result in each case.
Skillful, Protective And Thorough Defense
In every case, we thoroughly investigate every aspect of the case against your child. Our experience as prosecutors gives us a complete understanding of the process and strategy on both sides of criminal cases. We will work hard to find the weaknesses of the state’s case and will use those weaknesses to negotiate a dismissal or reduction of the charges.
In some cases, more serious offenses can be transferred, or “bound over,” to adult criminal court if the child is over the age of 14. Cases in adult criminal court can bring more severe penalties and a permanent criminal record. We do everything we can to keep your child’s case in juvenile court. In addition, we seek to have your child admitted to diversionary programs rather than detention whenever possible.
We have experience with a wide variety of juvenile crime cases, including:
- Underage alcohol consumption, purchase or fake ID usage
- Drug crimes of all types
- Gun charges
- Accusations of rape, exposure or other sex offenses
- Gang activity
- Violent crimes
The sooner you speak with an attorney, the more likely you are to be able to take advantage of the options available. We can help you understand what those options are and which option best protects your child.
