Can my child’s charges be reduced or dropped?

It might be possible to get your child’s charges reduced or dropped depending on the severity of the crime and the effectiveness of their defense. If the prosecution cannot prove every aspect of their case beyond a reasonable doubt, then the charges against your child could be dropped. Even if a not-guilty verdict isn’t attainable, a juvenile crime lawyer can work to poke holes in the prosecution’s case and potentially get your child’s charges reduced.

If your child goes before a JCC or ISC for an informal hearing and fulfills all their sentencing requirements, then they could have their charges dismissed by the court.
