Juvenile Crime Lawyer Defends Minors Against Criminal Charges in Madison, NJ
Madison is a quiet, residential area known for its strong educational, cultural and historical amenities. Although Madison has an outstanding reputation, there are instances where the Madison Police Department has to investigate juvenile crimes and file charges against those involved.
If your child is fourteen years or older and is charged with an act of delinquency, the agency charging your child will take all reasonable steps to fingerprint him or her. This is permitted by N.J.S.A. 2A:4A-6Ia (3). It is also very likely that your child will be photographed for criminal identification purposes and a copy of his or her picture will be sent to the county prosecutor. Therefore, it is important that minors charged with an act of delinquency consult with a juvenile defense lawyer to ensure the best outcome possible and to protect him or her from the possible consequences of a conviction. A conviction may affect college admission and future employment opportunities.
