The stories are common enough. A teen is at the mall and accused by a store manager of shoplifting and the police are called. A minor is arrested for underage drinking at a school dance. The list could go on, but these situations amount to the same thing–an appearance in juvenile court. At Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., in Chicago and Woodridge, Illinois, we are criminal defense attorneys experienced in juvenile law.
Juvenile crimes in Illinois are often the same offenses that adults are charged with, only they are prosecuted differently. Our juvenile delinquency lawyer commonly defends minor clients against many different charges, including:
We apply the same techniques in defense of adults accused of crimes as well. The attorneys in our law firm investigate each case fully, and look for effective strategies to overcome the prosecution’s case. For our juvenile and underage clients, however, we will work with the court to find alternatives to boot camps and juvenile detention, such as court supervision, probation and home monitoring.
