New Jersey Defense Attorney Protects Underage Defendants Charged With Serious Crimes In Camden And Burlington Counties
Kids make mistakes; it’s all part of growing up and learning. However, when bad decisions turn into criminal charges, your child needs an experienced defense lawyer on their side. I am attorney Stephen R. Piper, and I have the insight you require to fight for your child’s future. Depending on the charges, penalties for conviction of a juvenile crime can include hefty fines, loss of driving privileges and a criminal record. Despite their young age, real prison time is possible in certain situations, especially those involving violent crimes.
When you retain me, I will do everything possible to make sure your child’s case is heard in juvenile court where judges have the discretion to use leniency in sentencing, rather than in New Jersey Superior Court, where they could be imprisoned with hardened adult criminals. I feel strongly that one bad judgment call shouldn’t ruin your child’s future, which is why I will fight tirelessly to defend them against their charges in New Jersey court.
Protecting The Rights Of Juvenile Offenders In New Jersey
There is a major difference between juvenile court and traditional state or federal court. In fact, the way laws are interpreted and the various consequences associated with the juvenile crimes makes it important that you choose a defense lawyer familiar with the New Jersey Juvenile Justice System. As a former Camden County assistant prosecutor who served in the Juvenile Trial Unit, I know the seriousness of the consequences facing juvenile offenders. I understand the challenges associated with juvenile defense and will use my experience and knowledge of the system to protect your child’s future.
It’s completely understandable if you are overwhelmed and your child is frightened by the potential penalties that lie ahead if they are convicted. Your best defense is knowledge; I will answer your questions and help you understand your options. In addition to conducting a thorough investigation to build your child’s defense strategy, I will work tirelessly to get the case heard in juvenile court to avoid the possibility of an adult record.
