Juvenile Defense Attorneys in Dallas, TX
Children between the ages of 10 and 16 years old accused of a crime are prosecuted as juveniles. Kids at this age don’t have the knowledge or experience of adults who find themselves in similar situations, so it may not surprise you that most juvenile cases are proven through a confession. Just like an adult, a juvenile has the right to remain silent and speak with an attorney. If your child has been accused of a crime, it’s critical they do not talk to law enforcement officials without the guidance of an attorney. Contact our team at Estrada & Puente, P.L.L.C. in Dallas, TX, to discuss your child’s juvenile case today.
