Find a Criminal Defense Attorney in Livingston County, New York

Has your child been arrested and charged with a criminal offense? It is important for you to understand the ramifications of a conviction, as well as the long-term issues that they could face. First, it is important to understand the age of responsibility. Many criminal offenses committed by a child can be charged in family court provided that the child is between the ages of 7 and 16 and the crime is not a serious offense. Generally, a child can be charged as a youth in criminal court if the child is between the ages of 16 and 19 for most offense, or between 13 and 16 for some very serious offenses.

If your child is convicted of a felony in criminal court, and the criminal court does not enter a "youthful offender adjudication," then they will incur a criminal record for life. This is a serious matter as this could prevent them from obtaining educational opportunities, employment, housing, bank loans, and other benefits that require a background check. It is vital for you to take the necessary steps to attempt to protect your child from the serious adverse effects that they could face. At Van Allen & Hoffmann, LLP, our Livingston County attorneys genuinely care about our clients, and you can be sure that you will receive the representation that you need if you choose to work with us.
