Juveniles Charged with Sexual Offenses
New Brunswick Juvenile Sex Offenses Attorney
Unlike the adult criminal justice system, the juvenile criminal justice system is geared toward rehabilitation. As such, judges and prosecutors are more inclined to give a young person a second chance when it’s clear that he or she needs professional help, counseling or an opportunity to rise above their situation. In this regard, juveniles charged with sexual crimes can avoid being charged as an adult or “falling into the system” with the proper legal representation and guidance. Depending on the charges involved, it may be possible for a young person to avoid being sent to a juvenile detention facility in exchange for getting the help he or she needs.
If your child has been accused of a crime it is important that neither you or your children answer questions, make statements or consent to searches by law enforcement.

Rehabilitation Instead of Incarceration in Juvenile Sex Cases
In order to prevent a teen from re-offending as an adult, the juvenile court system is geared toward intervention and prevention. As such, juveniles who do not have a lengthy criminal record are more likely to receive lighter sentences while being required to seek medical or professional help with regard to their crime.
While the court views sex crimes as serious, depending on the circumstances surrounding your son or daughter’s case, it may be possible to get him or her the help they need instead of subjecting them to a juvenile detention facility. Here, it’s important to understand how the juvenile system works and what must be done to convince the court to give a troubled teen a second chance.
