If you have a child under 18 who has been arrested in Michigan, he or she will be charged through the local Juvenile Justice System instead of the regular adult court system.
The Juvenile Justice System in Michigan is focused on rehabilitating youth instead of punishing them. This can give your son or daughter a second chance should they commit crimes.
Juvenile crimes in Michigan that use the Juvenile Justice System include: drug use or possession, assault and battery, trespassing, petty and grand theft, violent crimes, property crimes, possession of alcohol or fake ID, arson, traffic violations, DUI, drag racing and probation violations.
At Luedke Law Group, we handle many cases related to juvenile matters. If your child has been charged with crimes that are referred to the Michigan Juvenile Justice System, we recommend you contact our office immediately.
