Juvenile Crimes

Due to their age, children receive special treatment in Arizona. Unfortunately, because of their youth, they often do not comprehend the ramifications of their actions until it is too late. A juvenile conviction (known as an “Adjudication”) may cause immediate and irreparable harm to your child’s future. A criminal record can interfere with your child’s admission to a university and their ability to secure a good job.

Under some circumstances a child can be charged with a crime as an adult. This can happen by “direct filing” from the County Attorney’s Office or by a “transfer” proceeding.
