Juvenile court, although separate from regular criminal court, can be just as intimidating. Juvenile sanctions vary from adult sentences, and the Judge follows a set of strict guidelines. However, an experienced criminal defense attorney can assist, especially with early contact with the State Attorney’s Office. Certain juvenile cases, such as those involving firearms, can be direct filed into adult court regardless of the child’s age, and early contact with the State Attorney’s Office may be able to prevent that from happening.
