Minors Committing Crimes

What is juvenile delinquency? Juvenile delinquency is when a minor has committed an act that is a crime. They are almost always tried in juvenile court, although in cases of extreme crimes they can be tried as an adult. If your minor child is a juvenile delinquent, you want to start being proactive and help in preventing him or her from being charged in the future. When a juvenile delinquent has a record with multiple crimes, the juvenile court judge will not be as lenient. The judge may come down much harder on sentencing.

That is why you need my legal representation. My name is Catherine Cleveland. As an attorney with more than 15 years of experience, I have represented many juveniles in the juvenile court systems here in Utah. I believe in compassionate representation as these are still children. They deserve to be helped not just within the legal system but given all the necessary counseling and rehabilitation they need. I will see to it that your child gets on the right path. This starts with successful defense representation.

Delinquency Cases

Common juvenile delinquency charges involve:

  • Class A misdemeanors and felonies
  • Class B or class C misdemeanors and infractions
  • Alcohol and tobacco violations
  • Violations of curfew laws
  • Class B misdemeanors or lesser traffic violations (minors under 16)
