The Juvenile Court System Differs Greatly from the Adult System

Juvenile criminal courts and adult criminal courts differ in both structure and goals. The adult criminal justice system focuses on convicting and imposing an appropriate punishment. The juvenile system, however, is designed to both punish and rehabilitate the minors who come before the courts. There are other major differences between the two criminal systems. For example, the juvenile system does not involve trials with juries. Rather, it involves court hearings in front of judges.

Because the juvenile system is drastically different from the adult system, it is critical that you hire an underage crime attorney with extensive experience defending minors. Morton Law Group has years of experience handling even the most complex juvenile cases, including those involving:

  • Trespassing
  • Burglary and Theft
  • Drug Charges
  • Underage Drinking
  • Minors in Possession of Alcohol
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Vandalism
  • Violent Crimes
  • Sex Offenses

Keeping Your Child’s Case in the Juvenile Court System

In some circumstances, minors can be charged with the same crimes as adults. This means the accused minors may be subject to the harsher penalties that an adult would be subject to. As an experienced Nevada juvenile criminal defense attorney, Nadine Morton will aggressively litigate to keep your child’s case in the juvenile system and work to minimize the impact of the charge on his or her future.
