Juvenile Crime Lawyers Help Minors Fight Charges in Somerville, NJ
Juvenile offenses arising out of Somerville are typically handled in the Family Court Division of Somerset County Superior Court. Somerset County Superior Court is located at 20 North Bridge Street in Somerville.
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-6I. 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 to contact a juvenile defense lawyer to protect him or her from the possible consequences of a conviction. A conviction may affect college admission and future employment opportunities.
