When you have a child charged with a juvenile crime of any kind, it can be a difficult time for the entire family. When you work with the criminal defense firm of Foy & Seplowitz you can be sure that we will be working hard to help you find the best and most efficient path toward resolving this matter.
Since juvenile prosecution usually results in less severe punishments than adult prosecution, one of the most important aspects of juvenile crime defense is making sure that the charges remain at the juvenile level. In some circumstances, a judge will decide to elevate the charges and charge the young person as an adult if the prosecution makes a waiver motion. If that is the case, punishments can be increased significantly. Foy & Seplowitz will fight to keep these charges in juvenile court and limit the possible punishments in the case of a conviction.
Call the offices of Foy & Seplowitz today to schedule a consultation and discuss your child’s options. Our team would be proud to work with your family and help to get your life back on track.
