Defending Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile Crime Rates in Polk County

If your child has been arrested for any type of juvenile crime, it is crucial that you seek experienced legal representation to help you prevent a negative outcome that could follow your child for years into the future. There were 4,543 juvenile delinquency complaints filed in Polk County in fiscal year 2009-10, according to the Office of Economic & Demographic Research, and local law enforcement is working to reduce that figure by cracking down on all types of juvenile criminal offenses. The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice reports that misdemeanor assault and battery is the most commonly reported offense among youths, with 15,422 cases reported statewide last year, while burglary is the most common felony offense.

Any type of criminal conviction has the potential to ruin your child's future, as the penalties would not be limited to possible detention and probation. Many colleges and universities will deny a scholarship on the grounds of a juvenile conviction, while others will even refuse to accept your child altogether. Having a criminal record can also make it extremely difficult to find suitable employment, with the result that your child's career may be cut short before it even began.
