Clarksville Juvenile Lawyers
When a young person breaks the rules, society endeavors to correct the young person's actions rather than punish them. Many famous people have had indiscretions of youthful behavior. In these cases, it is in society's best interest not to brand them as criminals and give them a permanent record that would follow them for the rest of their lives and disqualify them from many forms of employment, military service, and professions.
Options for Minors Facing Criminal Charges
The Aldred Law Firm has had tremendous success in representing young people in Juvenile Court proceedings. One of our favorite options is what is known as "Juvenile Pre-Trial Diversion" per Rule 23 or an "Informal Adjustment" per Rule 14. Through this procedure a person under the age of 18 can be brought before the Court with counseling and other action and have the case "put on hold" for a period of time. We also have success in representing juveniles who were tried as adults because of the serious nature of the crime they were charged with committing.
If the young person does all that is required of them, the charges are often completely dismissed. Yes, dismissed as if the charges were never brought to begin with and the record can be expunged. Therefore, the young person not only does not have a juvenile record, they don't even have any citations of record.
