Juvenile Offenses

Defending a minor against a juvenile criminal offense is more than just avoiding penalties; it is about protecting a young person’s future. Our attorneys provide vigorous and skillful legal defense for families of adolescents charged with criminal juvenile offenses in communities throughout South Carolina.

At Axelrod & Associates, P.A., we always remember that a single mistake doesn’t make your child a criminal. A juvenile criminal record can affect your child in so many ways. If your child is found guilty of a juvenile criminal offense, your child may have difficulty finding a job, finding a place to live and obtaining scholarship money for college.

Examples of juvenile criminal offenses include:

  • DUI, alcohol charges
  • Date rape
  • Truancy
  • Assault
  • Shoplifting, theft, check forgery
  • Minor possession of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Simple possession, marijuana and/or cocaine
  • Runaways
  • Juvenile sex crimes

Adolescents can make mistakes. If your child has been charged with a juvenile offense, contact us today and let us help you get the justice you deserve. In addition to minimizing the criminal penalties of the juvenile crime you or a loved one faces, we may be able to assist you with pretrial intervention (also known as PTI). PTI allows the juvenile to complete a determinate amount of community service, pay any restitution owed and receive extensive counseling. Upon successful completion of PTI, many juvenile criminal charges can be expunged/wiped clean from their criminal record.
