Juvenile Criminal Penalties

Most juvenile courts have a wide range of sentencing options, which are used primarily to punish juveniles who have been found “delinquent,” or guilty of violating a criminal law. This includes things like incarceration and non-incarceration options.

We are based in Boston and will fight for your rights. We are local and if you or someone you know has been arrested for juvenile crimes, please don’t hesitate to speak with a criminal defense attorney at Dhar Law, LLP. We can defend your child’s future and your freedom.
