Juvenile Matters Lawyer New York, NY

Juvenile Matters Lawyer New York, NY

At the Law Office of Daniel Clement, we believe that kids deserve to be given the benefit of the doubt. They should be allowed to go into adulthood with a fresh start and clear record. But as our New York, NY juvenile matters lawyer has seen, juvenile offenders may not be provided proper access to a qualified defense team and parents may worry about crimes following their children into adulthood. It is common for teenagers to sometimes make mistakes. They are navigating their way in the world and are learning what it is to become an adult. Defending an adolescent requires experience in handling juvenile crimes as NYC law applies to young offenders. If you have questions about this, please contact us now. 

Juvenile Crime Consequences

When a juvenile has a serious criminal record prior to reaching the age of adulthood, it can cause long-term consequences for their success. Leaving a teenager in the system as a way to learn a lesson can be tragic, as this removes their ability to get ahead before they have even had a chance at adulthood. A juvenile may feel burdened as if they cannot ever get ahead, which may influence them to spend more time with young criminally-minded individuals instead of positive role models they can aspire to be. Certain juvenile crimes may not get sealed automatically, and it could count as a strike in adulthood, leaving not much room for a defense against a prolonged prison sentence. For instance, a teenager who gets convicted of a strike crime could face prison that is nearly twice as long in adulthood for a felony (which could be an offense as simple as drug possession). If you are someone dealing with a juvenile defense or a parent worried about their child’s future, please contact our dedicated juvenile matters attorney today for support. We can give you advice once we hear more about what you are dealing with. 

Alternative Sentencing

Losing the freedom to live your life how you wish is undoubtedly one of the most traumatic aspects of a criminal conviction. There is no price that can be put on freedom. A jail time sentencing can affect someone’s personal life, career, reputation, and future. However, alternative sentencing provides juveniles with a second chance at keeping their freedom. But alternative sentencing may not be suitable for all situations. The judge may consider various factors of the offense and degree of harm that was caused to others when deciding if alternative sentencing is appropriate. If you have questions about alternative sentencing, contact our team right away.
