Akron Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Juvenile Criminal Attorneys in Akron, Ohio
Having your child accused of a crime can be heart breaking and cause turmoil in the family. Many of the rules, procedures, and defense strategies in juvenile court are different than adult court. There is no right to a jury trial and no right to bail. You need an experienced, compassionate lawyer who is familiar with juvenile offenses to represent your case. Normally, juveniles under 18 are tried as minors. However, in more serious accusations, such as murder or rape, they maybe tried as an adult.
Juvenile Practice Areas:
Police Interrogation of Minors
It’s imperative your child does not talk to law enforcement or provide any information because it may be used against them. Authorities commonly use manipulation in order to get information out of juveniles, especially when their parents are not around. The police are not required to inform a minor that they can request the presence of an adult, but they do have to abide by the request if asked. Law enforcement can lie, threaten, and trick minors when interrogating them. These are tactics used in hopes of getting your child to confess to the crime.
