Juvenile Crimes

Young people make mistakes. They're often dealing with issues that they are not prepared to face, and sometimes they act out inappropriately. A fight with a parent, brother, sister or other family member may result in assault or domestic violence charges.

At The Law Office of Cary L. Lackey, P.C., I have been representing youths in Maricopa County Juvenile Court and the Pinal County Juvenile Court since 1995. As a juvenile criminal defense lawyer, I approach every case differently because the needs of each youth are never identical. I look for the sort of resolution that will best remedy the young person's situation and will place him or her on the right road toward a better future.

Wide Variety Of Juvenile Representation

The kinds of cases in which I represent juveniles include:

  • Assault and domestic violence
  • Underage drinking and driving, including DUI
  • Traffic offenses
  • Underage alcohol violations
  • Graffiti
  • Vandalism and destruction of property
  • Shoplifting and petty theft
  • Sex crime allegations
  • Prostitution
  • Marijuana possession and distribution
  • Other drug crimes

Finding The Resources To Help The Young Person Out

Especially for teenagers and young adults, the stigma of a crime can follow them around for the rest of their lives. What they generally need and often never receive is help and assistance rather than criminal punishment. Their parents may be divorcing and they may require counseling to help deal with this situation. Some young people face drug or alcohol problems and could benefit from substance abuse treatment.

Having practiced as an attorney as long as I have, I have access to the sorts of resources available in the Phoenix, Arizona, area that can assist the youth with his or her psychological and emotional issues. Addressing issues in advance can avoid more severe consequences later on.
