Juvenile Crimes

Defense Attorney Serving All of OC

At the Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman, we recognize the severity and long-term ramifications that a juvenile conviction can have, which is why we provide aggressive representation for juveniles who want to protect their futures. As soon as possible after your child has been charged with a theft crime, a gang crime, or any other offense, contact our firm for a confidential consultation with an Orange County juvenile defense attorney from our team. We have 20 years of experience and know how to effectively fight the charges your child faces.

Consequences of a Juvenile Crime Conviction

If you are the parent of a juvenile who is in trouble with the law, you should know that a criminal conviction could carry lifelong consequences, including:

  • Ineligibility for scholarships or other educational opportunities
  • Difficulties in securing credit
  • Disqualification for employment

Don't accept a plea bargain before bringing the matter to an lawyer who can review your options and determine the most suitable course of action for you and your child.

Juvenile Crime Statistics

According to the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, an estimated 1,642,500 minors are arrested every year. In 2010, 1,000 persons under the age of 18 were arrested for murder or non-negligent manslaughter. An estimated 2,900 minors were arrested for forcible rape, along with 44,800 juveniles who were arrested for aggravated assault.

Other common juvenile arrests include burglary, larceny, theft, car theft, arson, fraud, drug abuse, disorderly conduct, alcohol-related offenses, and vandalism. At the Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman, we believe that juveniles who have been arrested for any crime have the right to the best legal representation they can find. If your child was arrested, contact us today for the legal defense that you need.

Fighting Juvenile Crime Charges in Orange County

We have many proven criminal defense strategies at our disposal, from challenging the reliability of the evidence, to arguing that our client has been wrongfully accused, or even demonstrating that the evidence was gathered in violation of our client's Constitutional rights.
