Akron Juvenile Defense Attorney
Defending the Rights of Minors
After you or your child has been arrested for violating a law in Ohio,
you will need to take immediate action to protect his or her freedom.
Juvenile court procedures are different from those of the adult court
system. Rehabilitation, rather than punishment, is the primary focus of
the juvenile court system. Rehabilitation means that judges use non-conventional
sentencing, including community service or probation, to encourage the
youth to avoid criminal activity.
Many juvenile crimes result in serious consequences to those who are convicted
and therefore, you will need the dedicated attention of the
Akron criminal defense lawyer at my firm. The mistake that a juvenile delinquent is accused of making
can have a major impact on his or her life for years. Even a small offense
can have a detrimental effect on you or your child's ability to obtain
a job or be accepted into a university.
Juvenile Court Process
Christopher G. Thomarios, Esq. LLC, my firm intimately knows the juvenile court process and can represent
you through each step. Teenagers can be tried in the juvenile court up
until their 18th birthday. After that point, a juvenile delinquent's
case is transferred to common pleas. Minors can have their cases "bound
over" to the county be tried as adults in some circumstances which
will result in much more severe penalties. My firm's goal during representation
is to help you obtain the best possible result.
