Many good kids make mistakes in their teen years that can change the course of their lives if not dealt with properly. An under-18 conviction can be very costly when it comes to college admission, job prospects and other important aspects of a young person's future.
It is critical to take any Florida juvenile arrest seriously — from an alcohol or drug charge to a property crime such as criminal mischief or an alleged violent offense. If you are a parent trying to help your child or a young person in trouble, please contact Panama City juvenile crimes attorney Stan Peacock now for a consultation .
