As your juvenile defense attorney, Michael L. Fell will work hard to secure a fair outcome to vandalism charges.
When kids don’t have enough to do, they make their own entertainment. And sometimes this involves intentionally damaging someone else’s property. Common examples include:
- Breaking windows
- Keying cars
- Egging a house
All of these activities qualify as vandalism, and it is possible your child could face criminal charges. If you do not act quickly, your child may even end up being detained in juvenile hall. This is especially likely if they have a history of run-ins with the law.
Get Michael L. Fell On Your Side Now
The juvenile justice system can be confusing. Kids have different due process rights than adults, and their cases will be adjudicated differently too. It is very important to make sure you have an experienced juvenile defense attorney on your side to guide you through the process.
When it comes to vandalism charges, Michael L. Fell makes an excellent choice of juvenile defense attorney because he understands the law and the juvenile system. He is also an expert in “creative sentencing,” meaning he will work hard to secure a fair penalty if your child is prosecuted for vandalism.
For example, with Attorney Fell’s help your child may be able to pay restitution to the owner of the property that was vandalized or do community service instead of being incarcerated. In the case of a first-time vandalism offense involving very little damage to property, Attorney Fell may even be able to get the prosecution to agree to a diversion program, which will result in the charges being dropped.
