The Mayer Law Firm Juvenile Crimes

Ohio Juvenile Crimes

Proven Legal Counsel and Aggressive Defense in North Central Ohio

If your child has been arrested and charged with a criminal offense, it is important that you pursue legal representation from a capable Mansfield criminal defense lawyer immediately. Some of the offenses that could result in severe penalties for juveniles include:

Depending on the age of your child, the circumstances under which they were charged, and the type of crime they have been charged with, they could face penalties such as probation, drug monitoring, confinement in custody or a detention center, alcohol treatment, medical counseling, house arrest, driver's license suspension, sex offender registration or even imprisonment. Even less serious offenses such as juvenile traffic offenses and underage drinking can have significant consequences for your child.

In the most serious cases, the state of Ohio may opt to prosecute juveniles as adults by filing a motion to transfer jurisdiction to adult court. This is commonly referred to as a "Juvenile Bindover." Common examples of offenses subject to Bindover include but are not limited to murder, rape, aggravated robbery, arson, and aggravated burglary. If Bound Over, your child could be sent to adult prison.
