Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile Defense Attorney in Denton County

Denton County Criminal Defense Lawyer

When a minor is charged with a crime, the criminal process is usually different than it is for adults. Minors are treated with some leniency; are detained in juvenile detention centers; and are imprisoned in juvenile correctional facilities so that they are not in the same facilities as convicted adults.

The penalties for minors are also different. Most juvenile offenders face a fine and may be sent home on probation instead of being sent to juvenile detention. Even though these penalties are less serious than the fines and imprisonment that adults face, a criminal conviction can still have a harsh impact on a minor. This is why it is beneficial to have a juvenile defense attorney in Denton County.

How a Conviction Can Affect a Juvenile

Aside from the fines and time spent in juvenile detention (when applicable), minors can face harsh consequences with their friends and family. A child can lose the respect of their peers, as well as of their teachers and coaches, when they are convicted of a crime. Even if the minor is not convicted, they could lose their solid reputation simply by facing charges. They may also lose opportunities for the following:

  • receiving scholarships
  • attending school events
  • gaining admittance to colleges

    Aimee answered all my questions and she made me feel comfortable in all my needs. I would use the Haugen Law Firm for all my probate needs and would give my highest recommendation.
    "High Ethical Standards"
    Everything was clearly explained. I could tell Mr. H has very high ethical standards which created a sense of trust for us. He was thorough and met all my deadlines. I've had only negative experiences before Mr. H regarding lawyers. I will be recommending him to everyone who needs legal help.
    "Salvaged My Situation"
    After meeting with Mr. Haugen, I felt he was honest, qualified and had a commitment to my best interest, which my previous attorney failed to do. Mr. Haugen was up against salvaging my situation my previous attorney made a mess of. Mr. Haugen is an honest and extremely competent attorney who is tough, yet remains calm and collected. He salvaged the mess I was in and helped me to move on. For that I greatly appreciate his service.
    "Assured That I Am In Good Hands"
    I had no idea how this all would work. But, no matter how small and confusing my questions were they were all treated with importance and taken seriously. I was never pushed, but was always assured that I am in good hands. I was able to trust John, which is rare. I have no second thoughts about having him as my lawyer or recommending him to my loved ones.
