Is Your Child Charged with a Crime?

No one wants to get the phone call that their child has been arrested. As kids grow up and begin exploring their new freedoms, they will sometimes make mistakes. It’s inevitable. You just hope that they don’t cross the line.

Fortunately, when they do cross that line and get arrested, the juvenile criminal justice system focuses on rehabilitation over punishment. Especially for a juvenile’s first offense, the punishments can be quite minor, and center around correcting the behavior that landed them in court.

Most crimes are automatically sealed once the juvenile turns 18. There is no need to hire a lawyer to petition the court like there is for adults. Attorney Rob Chesnutt handles juvenile cases in Travis County, and can walk you and your child through the process step-by-step.
