Youth Offense Defense Lawyers in Edmonton
Young Offenders – Edmonton, Alberta
Choosing the right criminal lawyer to stand by your side as early as possible in the juvenile detention hearing process could mean the difference between seeing your son or daughter in the comforts of your own home or behind the harsh walls of a detention centre. Contact Slaferek Callihoo’s juvenile crime defense lawyers today.
We, at Slaferek Callihoo, are a criminal defense team who understands there are many significant differences between the adult criminal justice system and the juvenile criminal justice system. When your family is facing juvenile criminal charges, you need a criminal lawyer who has argued before juvenile court judges, established themselves among juvenile court prosecutors, and who know how to seek alternate means of sentencing, where your child can avoid incarceration, fines, and other long-lasting penalties.
In some cases, when the criminal defense team presents your case properly, and the juvenile admits guilt, the court and prosecutors will settle the charges if the juvenile agrees to meet certain requirements. No matter if the child is charged as a juvenile sex offender, young sex offender, or has been charged with vandalism, their sentence may be reduced or dismissed if they complete one or more of the following requirements:
- Restitution – the child or child’s family is required to pay back the victim for the damage he/she caused
- Counseling Programs – to address emotional issues or drug dependency
- Community Service – the juvenile is required to dedicate a certain amount of hours working in his or her community
- Educational Performance – a performance plan requiring the child to meet certain grade requirements and attend school regularly.
So Much is at Stake for Your Child – Hire the Best
