Juvenile Criminal Charges in the Cities?
Let Our Minneapolis Criminal Lawyers Help
The juvenile court system handles all hearings for minors (anyone under 18 years of age), charged with the juvenile equivalents of misdemeanors or felonies. Minneapolis and St. Paul criminal lawyer Kyle Wermerskirchen has extensive experience in Juvenile Court, and holds the Court to its mission of providing rehabilitiative, rather than punitive, solutions to juvenile offenses. He understands how important it is to keep a child's record clean as he or she enters adulthood. An adjudication of delinquency in juvenile court does not disappear at the age of 18 and can remain part of a record that may haunt a young person for years. This is especially true in cases where extended juvenile jurisdiction (E.J.J.) or adult certification is threatened. Each of these types of criminal juvenile cases requires a careful examination of the facts and zealous advocacy to insure that the Court reaches the right result for the young person involved. Common juvenile crimes and charges include:
- Drug Possession
- Alcohol violations, including Minor in Possession (MIP) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Curfew Violation
- Weapon Possession
