Is Your Child Being Charged as an Adult?
Juveniles charged as adults, in a process known as a
bind over, face very serious criminal consequences. In such situations, a child
as young as 14 years old can be vulnerable to the same consequences and
punishments as an adult for a range of offenses. Contacting a skilled
criminal defense lawyer to handle the charges is imperative. At The Stone
Law Firm, LTD, we care about the community's youth. We vigorously
fight to protect youthful offenders' futures.
Fighting to Protect Your Child from Bind Overs
Most bind overs begin with a juvenile court hearing. Juveniles do not have
the right to a jury trial. A judge can transfer a juvenile's case
when he or she decides there is probable cause to show that the young
person committed a serious felony offense or a crime involving a firearm,
and the youth is likely to reoffend.
Our law firm is available from the beginning to protect a young person's
rights. At a juvenile court hearing, we can work hard to persuade a judge
against transferring a juvenile's case to adult court by questioning
evidence and putting our full effort into showing that rehabilitating
the child is a possibility.
However, some cases are automatically subject to bind overs. We can provide
aggressive defense strategies for juveniles charged as adults in Bucyrus,
Ohio, and surrounding areas.
Our law firm can conduct thorough investigations for young people facing
a range of felony adult charges, including:
