Don’t Underestimate Minor In Possession Charges
We Provide Effective Defense Strategies
An immediate plea of guilty to a minor in possession charge ignores not only the complexity of these criminal cases, but also the rights of the minor arrested for the crime. At Sheehan & Associates, P.L.C, we educate our clients and their children on their options and pursue strategies to minimize the consequences.
Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
The lawyers at Sheehan & Associates, P.L.C., protect the constitutional rights of our clients against illegal tactics taking the form of unlawful searches and seizures. The circumstances surrounding questioning a minor must be valid as well. Attending to all details and getting to the facts of an arrest is vital to ensuring that a minor’s rights are protected.
Your child asserting their right to remain silent is not about being uncooperative. It is about protecting themselves. That information can be used against them in court. We encourage minors to be polite, but do not be specific about the situation they have found themselves in. Do not let fear compromise the case. Being silent helps us build a strong defense on your child’s behalf.
Far too much is at stake for a minor to plead guilty immediately. The case may be resolved, but the future is now uncertain. The consequences of a criminal record are severe and could impact future employment, college opportunities and professional licensing.
