Juvenile Delinquency Lawyer in NH
What is Juvenile Delinquency?
Juvenile delinquency refers to antisocial or illegal behavior by children or adolescents.
Youths are more likely to be caught for committing crimes than adults are. However innocent these crimes may seem these convictions can have a devastating effect on their life. A lot of these crimes are peer pressured and provoked by others in their social circle. The youth may be a good kid with no previous history of any delinquencies. Carrying a misdemeanor or felony on your record does not look good on a resume. We will fight to protect your innocence and your rights.
Everyone that enters our office is presumed innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. You are innocent from the time of the arrest to the verdict. In between that time we will build a strong defense for you through intense investigations and years of experience in these cases. These cases can mean the difference between jail time to a simple juvenile counseling program.
Scared Straight Program
The Scared Straight Program teaches youth about the dangers of addiction by letting them see firsthand the devastation of addiction. This Juvenile awareness program is intended to prevent juvenile delinquency.
Programs like 'Scared Straight' involve organized visits to prison facilities by juvenile delinquents or children at risk for becoming delinquent. The programs are designed to deter participants from future offending by providing first-hand observations of prison life and interaction with adult inmates. Results of this review indicate that not only does it fail to deter crime, but it actually leads to more offending behavior.
Government officials permitting this program need to adopt rigorous evaluation to ensure that they are not causing more harm to the very citizens they pledge to protect.
