Legal News

Camden County NJ Juvenile Defense Attorney

Representing Clients throughout Southern New Jersey

Anyone under the age of 18 can potentially be charged with a juvenile offense in New Jersey. The good news is that the goal of the NJ juvenile court system is to rehabilitate young offenders. However, the bad news is that this does not preclude the possibility of harsh punishment for your child if they are convicted of a juvenile offense. A conviction for a juvenile crime can have severe consequences, including a blemish on your son or daughter’s permanent record. Having a juvenile record can make things more difficult for your child later in life. That’s why it’s imperative that you speak with an experienced juvenile offense lawyer immediately.

The knowledgeable lawyers at the Law Offices of Leonard D. Biddison can help you. We will carefully examine the details of the case and determine the best course of action to try and keep your child’s record clean of a juvenile adjudication.

The New Jersey Juvenile Justice System

The juvenile court system in New Jersey has unique rules. When juvenile charges are brought against a minor, the case is usually heard in the county in which the juvenile resides. If necessary, we can file a motion to transfer your child’s case to the county of the offense.

An adjudication of guilty in the NJ juvenile court system can result in severe punishments. Depending upon the severity of the offense and the child’s prior criminal history, your child could be sentenced to serve time in a county juvenile detention center. That’s why it is critical that you speak with an attorney who has experience handling juvenile cases in New Jersey and who can answer any questions you might have about:

A juvenile trial is typically heard by a judge, not a jury. However, a juvenile offender has many options available to them that are not available in the adult criminal court system. For example, the judge in a juvenile trial has a great deal of flexibility when it comes to sentencing. In your child’s case, we may be able to seek a deferred disposition or juvenile probation. Alternatively, we may be able to keep your child out of detention by getting them admitted into a juvenile intensive supervision program.
