Defending Juveniles Charged withe Crimes throughout Connecticut
Young people often make mistakes, and the juvenile courts in Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties tend to be more lenient to underage offenders who have limited criminal histories. That does not, however, mean that if your son or daughter is arrested by the police, that their lives can’t be severely impacted. Even a single misdemeanor juvenile arrest can affect your child’s ability to continue his or her education or find employment in certain industries. The criminal defense attorneys of Norwalk’s Mark M. Kratter, LLC have successfully defended the types of charges that minors are frequently arrested for. Do not take a chance that the juvenile judge will be lenient; contact one of our juvenile defense lawyers immediately.
