Defense of Juveniles Attorney in Westfield, Indiana

When juveniles commit acts that would constitute a crime if committed by an adult, the legal process works differently. The youthful offender generally will be subject to a petition for delinquency. While the process mimics the adult criminal process in many ways with similar rights for the accused, an increased focus on rehabilitation exists. The judge has much more flexibility in ordering diversion or alternative sentencing. However, juveniles can be prosecuted as an adult in certain situations

At Webster & Garino LLC, our attorneys possess extensive experience representing juvenile offenders. We work hard to get the juvenile petition dismissed or to obtain favorable diversion options. Some of the juvenile cases we see most frequently include:
