About the Juvenile Court System in Florida

In adult court, the accused have a right to a jury trial. In Juvenile court, however, the Judge presiding over the case has the sole authority to determine if an individual is guilty or innocent of a crime.

The programs and sentencing structures are more lenient within the juvenile system than they are in the adult system, placing a far greater emphasis on rehabilitation than on punishment. That said, a strong defense lawyer may be necessary to ensure your child is not subject to unfair or even counter-productive punishments.

A Chance to Avoid a Permanent Record

A defense attorney can play a vital role in negotiating a child's acceptance into a diversionary program. To quality, the victims, the state attorney’s office and the judge all must agree this is an appropriate solution.

These diversionary programs are geared toward rehabilitation and allowing the minor to have a second chance to succeed in society without having a prior record.
