Gainesville Juvenile Defense Attorney

Juveniles (minors) are usually still under the care of their parents. The legal age of consent in Florida is 18. Not yet legally considered "adults," young offenders fall into a criminal justice system that is quite different from the one applied to adults. Age limits guide the courts on how to proceed with a case. If a child is under the age of 7, then that minor cannot be tried in any court, but the parents may be charged as the liable party.

Most juvenile offenders are between the ages of 7 and 15. As criminal trends constantly shift and the severity of the crimes increase, more juveniles as young as 12 are being redirected to be tried as adults.

This can be an incredibly trying experience for any child and their parents. Facing this court structure requires an experienced Gainesville criminal defense lawyer. It is difficult to know how to act in the best interest of your child. Securing legal representation is essential.

Like any other state, Florida has laws in place to protect the rights of children. Being accused or charged with a crime is serious at any age. Juvenile cases demand consideration of their age and it is not a guarantee that the courts will be forgiving and understanding. Skill and understanding of juvenile applications of the law are critical components in assessing this type of case. No child or family should approach this legal process alone or stand in their own defense. Kinsell Law Firm will evaluate the case and consider the best approach. Our goal is to help you and your child achieve the most favorable results.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney

is knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."
