A Juvenile Crime Is Handled Differently

When A Juvenile Is Tried As An Adult

There are circumstances when a juvenile can be charged as an adult. If a juvenile is charged with a crime such as murder or vehicular manslaughter, or has prior convictions, he or she may be tried as an adult depending on age. When a juvenile is facing adult charges, the court system and consequences of a conviction can have a very serious effect on juveniles and their families. John W. Noonan has extensive experience in the federal, state and juvenile court systems. He is a vigorous advocate for juveniles whose futures are at stake because of arrests for alleged juvenile offenses.
