Juveniles Arrested After Fire In South San Francisco
Sometimes juveniles are accused of crimes and their parents might not know how to handle the legal situation. Speaking with a criminal defense attorney who is experienced in juvenile criminal cases might be a wise decision.
The teens in this case were charged with conspiracy and burning property. Although they were released to their parents, they may still face some legal issues. They could face consequences that could harm their ability to get into college and might have long lasting effects. Parents often care about their child's wellbeing, and even if they make a mistake, would never want those mistakes to harm their chance at a solid future.
An attorney can help the teen and their family understand the charges they are facing and how the legal system works for juveniles. People might think that a crime committed by a juvenile is just automatically wiped off of their record once they become an adult, but it is important to fully understand how each individual charge can affect a teen's future. Some charges might consequences that might last into adulthood.
