CHOOSE AN EXPERIENCED JUVENILE ATTORNEY IN EL PASO, TX

In Texas, juvenile criminal law is different from the laws applied to adults. A "juvenile" is any person charged with a crime who is over ten and under seventeen years old. Juveniles are treated differently than adults. They may be released to their parents after being detained and a finding of guilt is called an "adjudication" rather than a conviction. Juvenile records can also be sealed when the juvenile reaches a certain age.
