Prince William County and Fauquier County Attorneys Defending Against Underage Drinking Charges
When minors are charged with a crime, conviction impacts not only their immediate circumstances, but also their futures. However, there are alternative sentencing options available and measures you can take to protect their long-term goals. To take advantage of these opportunities, you want an experienced juvenile criminal defense attorney on your side.
The juvenile courts often handle the same charges differently when it involves a minor than when it involves an adult in general district courts.
