Juvenile Crime Lawyer in Fort Myers, Florida

Defending a juvenile crime requires a particular knowledge of and familiarity with the Florida juvenile court system. This system operates differently and follows different procedures. For an attorney to be effective, he or she must have experience specifically with juvenile criminal defense.

The juvenile court system is designed to rehabilitate juvenile offenders, rather than to simply deal out punishment that will not give a juvenile the chance to learn from his or her actions. However, in some situations a prosecutor may push to have a juvenile offender tried as an adult. This typically occurs for repeat offenders, older minors and those accused of an extremely serious or violent offense.
