In New York State, Juvenile Delinquents are any person who is under 18 years old, but is at least 7 years old, who commits an act which would be a "crime" if he or she were an adult, and is then found to be in need of supervision, treatment or confinement. The act committed is called a "delinquent act".
Juvenile Delinquency cases are heard in Family Court. Children who are 13 through 17 years old who commit more serious or violent acts may be treated as adults.
Is your child charged with a crime? You can hire a criminal defense attorney, but they generally only practice in adult criminal court. Crimes are treated differently in family court- different laws and terms apply. We are experts in Juvenile Delinquency.
When your child's future is at stake, you want the best- someone who understands both criminal and family law.
