Criminal & Juvenile Law
Adults over the age of 18 can receive standard prosecution for criminal offenses, while children aged 10 to 18 typically are subject to juvenile law. What is the difference? The charges against adults are for committing “crimes,” while the charges against juveniles are for committing “delinquent acts.” That said, if juveniles commit a delinquent act deemed serious enough, they could receive charges of crimes as an adult.
The adult law system typically operates with the intention of punishing, while the juvenile law system aims to act in the best interest of the minor, hoping to rehabilitate. This means that even if children are less than 18 years old, they could be facing jail time if they go to court with charges as an adult. It makes retaining an excellent lawyer imperative.
When a couple separates or divorces, they will each likely choose to retain a family law attorney to represent them in matters like child custody, child support and division of property. Conwell Law, LLC, represents many clients in these scenarios, protecting their interests and rights.
