If your child is 14 years or older and charged with an offense that would be a crime if committed by an adult, the agency charging your child will take all reasonable steps to fingerprint your child. This is permitted by N.J.S.A. 2A:4A-6la(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. It is therefore important that your child retain a criminal 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.
