An Ally In Your Family’s Time of Need
Juvenile law applies to individuals under the age of 17 but older than 13. In some cases, however, an individual who falls within that age range can be charged as an adult. If a juvenile member of your family has been charged with murder, voluntary manslaughter, rape, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation, aggravated sexual battery or armed robbery, they will be tried in Superior Court. Juvenile charges are serious in Georgia, and you will need a proven Atlanta juvenile criminal defense attorney fighting for your future.

What Penalties Can I Expect to Face?
If you are adjudicated as a delinquent, you could be facing the following penalties:
- Incarceration for up to 90 days
- Being Committed to the Department of Juvenile Justice for two years
- Suspension of driving privileges
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, the court may pursue diversion, informal adjustment, or mediation. If you are deemed a “repeat offender,” however, you may be committed to the Department of Juvenile Justice for up to five years. This could result in you being imprisoned for that entire length of time.
