Juvenile Law

Parents and guardians will do everything in their power to see that their child's rights are protected and that they are treated fairly if they are accused of a crime. It is especially important that juveniles be afforded exceptional protection when they are accused of a crime. The sanctions that can be part of juvenile criminal charges can include:

  • Expulsion from School
  • Being found delinquent
  • The possibility of moving the juvenile’s case to adult court
  • Impact on the ability to have or maintain an Alabama driver's license

Howie & Associates, P.L.L.C., our Huntsville juvenile delinquency defense attorney, Mitchell J. Howie has been working in the juvenile justice system for years to defend juveniles with an unparalleled passion.

Juvenile Delinquency Defense Has Different Priorities Than Adult Criminal Court

One of the critical issues is to prevent a juvenile case from being moved to adult criminal court. We will work to keep your child's case in the juvenile justice system. In the juvenile justice system there are no jury trials, each case is heard by a judge. This and other factors present a different set of challenges to attorneys who lack the specific experience of working in the juvenile justice system.
