Competent Juvenile Burglary Defense In Minnesota
Like all other theft crimes, burglary comes with a lot of consequences. First, there are the criminal consequences. Second, there are collateral consequences. These deal more with the stigma attached to being convicted of an offense and difficulty doing things like finding an after school job or being accepted by a college as long as the offense can be seen on the minor’s criminal record.
There is also the fact that a minor can be charged as an adult, especially when the offense is committed in connection with a violent crime, such as assault. Judith Samson understands the nuances associated with a minor being charged as an adult. If the child is under the age of 18 and is accused of committing a felony, he or she could be certified as an adult.
