Juvenile Delinquency
Fighting for Your Child's Rights

When a child under the age of eighteen is charged with a juvenile crime in Florida, the case is often handled in the juvenile justice system.

The juvenile justice system is largely different than its adult counterpart.  The focus of the juvenile justice system is on rehabilitating juveniles, rather than punishing them.  Rehabilitation enables a minor to learn from his or her past mistakes and move on. We believe in helping children, teens and young adults by protecting their rights and interests in Florida juvenile court proceedings - so they can face a bright future. 

However, in limited instances, some juvenile cases are "direct filed" to adult court. While infrequently done, direct filed cases are usually the result of a repeat juvenile offender who has committed a serious crime.  As a first step in taking on a juvenile crime case, we work to ensure that the minor is not tried as an adult. In particular violent and serious felony offenses, a minor may face trial as an adult and therefore the same penalties that an adult would face.  We believe that juvenile offenders need rehabilitation, not simply punishment. 

If your child has been arrested or is facing juvenile charges, you will need someone to fight for your child.  As a former juvenile prosecutor, and now as a Milton juvenile delinquency defense lawyer, James Turner has experience dealing with juvenile crime. 

If your child has been arrested, you may be afraid for them and unsure of where to go for help.  If your child has been arrested or is in legal trouble in the Greater Pensacola area (including both Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties) contact the James Turner Law Firm, LLC immediately.

Contrary to popular belief, a juvenile offense can have serious consequences for both the child and the parent and legal guidance is extremely important.

When handled by a capable Milton juvenile delinquency and criminal defense attorney, juvenile cases can move very quickly. In most situations, the matter can be resolved in as little as 90 days. This is why choosing the right juvenile defense attorney is so important, especially to visitors and tourists whose children have run into legal trouble in Florida.
