Juvenile Crimes/School Disciplinary Proceedings
"Have You Been Convicted of a Felony or Misdemeanor?"
What is Your Job Application Response?
Being charged with a crime at a young age can damage your future chances for employment, college scholarships and the ability to rent an apartment. Job applications routinely ask "Have you ever been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony?" Your answer can mean the difference between a good paying job or no job at all.
Defense for Juveniles Accused of Adult Crimes
Depending on the crime, a juvenile may be charged as an adult. Often, where a juvenile is charged with a serious crime such as robbery, sexual assault or even murder, a juvenile can be "waived" into adult court, and face adult sentences.
In the hands of an experienced criminal defense attorney, being a juvenile can work in your favor. At the Law Offices of Robert Herz, P.C., you will be in the hands of an experienced criminal defense team that will vigorously defend your rights.
