Houston Juvenile Crimes
Every day across Texas young people are arrested for all types of criminal law violations. If a child is between the ages of 10 and 16 years old, then their case will be handled by the juvenile court system. If a charge is serious enough, some juveniles under the age of 17 may be tried as adults. Once a teenager is 17 years old, they are tried as an adult regardless of the charges.
Juveniles can be charged with crimes ranging from drug possession and assault to burglary or murder. For a juvenile who has been charged with a serious crime, the court system can be frightening. Sometimes young people don’t realize the implications to their future. A young person with a criminal conviction on their record may not be able to get into the college of their choice. There are many jobs, such as accounting and financial positions that will not be available to those with a criminal record.
Harris County Juvenile Defense Attorney
The future of any juvenile who has been charged with a serious crime is at stake. Though they will be prosecuted in a juvenile court, the consequences of a conviction can be very severe.
Even if your child is adjudicated as a juvenile delinquent, their criminal record can come into play if they are later charged as an adult in another crime. Young people can also receive indeterminate sentencing where they are sent to a juvenile detention center and later transferred to an adult jail once they reach the age 17.

When he started, he did not know a single attorney–let alone a criminal defense attorney–in the City of Houston. He built the foundation of a successful practice with little more than a code book and a can-do attitude.
