Has your child been charged with a juvenile offense?

Our juvenile court system is designed to encourage children aged 15 and younger to learn from their mistakes. In general, the juvenile justice system is geared to encourage rehabilitation over incarceration. Typically, the goal of a juvenile court is to intervene to assist in the rehabilitation of the young person so that he or she can move forward to a brighter future, without continued criminal involvement. Some sentences include:

  • counseling
  • rehabilitation
  • regular drug testing
  • requirement to sever certain associations

In some crimes, however, juvenile offenders are not treated leniently, and there is the possibility of a serious crime case being moved to adult court.

If your child has been charged with a violent felony crime, he or she will face far more severe consequences, including time served at a juvenile detention center or an adult prison with the worst offenders. You, as the parent of a child convicted of a juvenile crime, could also be forced to enter counseling with your child. The state of North Carolina requires parents to attend every court hearing unless the judge gives you special permission to miss any court appearance of a son or daughter. If you do not attend as ordered, you be facing fines and held in custody for up to 30 days.
