Voorhees, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2016 -- When defending juveniles in criminal court cases, a lawyer must be both experienced in the specific realm of juvenile law – in which proceedings differ from those for adult offenders – and possess an ability to communicate well with youth, in order to guide them towards the best actions for their future. Charles Block, an attorney specializing in DUI/DWIs, juvenile law, and expungements in Camden County, has recently announced that he is now available to provide representation for juvenile offenders.
Juvenile offenders are not able to be released on bail, nor are they necessarily entitled to a trial by jury – just two facets of defending juveniles that differs enormously from the adult system, and can complicate a case if a lawyer lacks the experience necessary to work within the juvenile justice system. Depending on the charge, juveniles can even be charged as adults and subject to the same penalties (notably jail time) as adult offenders. Hiring a lawyer to help avoid this kind of unfortunate outcome is of the utmost importance to a child's future, as a single misstep can result in years spent in an adult prison, whereas a charge in juvenile court could result in a sentence of far less severity.
Whether a minor has been accused of a crime but not yet charged, charged with a crime, already under the representation of a public defender, or in another step of the legal process, it is never too late to contact a defense attorney who will provide them with the attention they deserve. For a lawyer qualified to represent juveniles, assist with acquiring record expungements, or defend DUI/DWI in Camden, NJ,
