If your child was arrested for a crime, you may be unsure of what you should do. Should you do everything you can do to protect your child — or let him or her face the consequences? What will happen if your child is found to be delinquent?
Now is the time when you need legal advice. At the law firm of Peterson, Berk & Cross, S.C., our lawyers defend juveniles who are charged with crimes in Wisconsin. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your child's case. We have offices in Appleton and Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Protecting Your Child's Future
The goal of the juvenile justice system is rehabilitation, not punishment. On the other hand, juveniles can face serious consequences such as detention in a juvenile facility, probation and consequences at school. A child accused of underage DUI could face the same consequences an adult would face, even if he or she consumed only a small amount of alcohol. A child accused of a sex crime may even face lifetime registration as a sex offender when he or she becomes an adult.
Our lawyers defend juveniles accused of all types of crimes, including:
- Underage possession of alcohol
- Driving under the influence
- Drug charges
- Sexual assault
Our goal as your child's attorneys is to keep the focus of the criminal justice system on rehabilitation and to avoid consequences that could have a damaging effect on your child's future.
