Juvenile – Criminal

Juvenile Crimes

At Johnson, Chiligiris, & Weatherford we defend minors who have been charged with committing crimes. We understand that minors are young and impressionable who should not be harshly punished for a mistake or lapse in judgment. We negotiate with the State’s Attorney in order to obtain a resolution in the minor’s best interest. In the event, that a resolution cannot be amicably reached the matter can be set for trial.

  1. How old is the minor?
  2. Any prior crimes committed? If so, what are they?
  3. Is the minor already receiving community resources?
