Juvenile Crimes

East Grand Forks Juvenile Crimes Attorneys

When a child or teenager under the age of 18 commits any crime, from a serious felony like murder to a misdemeanor for being out past curfew, special court procedures and consequences often apply. At Dusek Law a East Grand Forks, criminal defense firm, we are passionate about helping juveniles throughout North Dakota and Minnesota mitigate negative consequences and protect their futures in these complex criminal proceedings.

Juvenile Defense Lawyers

A juvenile can commit almost any crime that an adult could; however, juvenile delinquency cases often involve the following charges:

  • Underage drinking
  • Drug possession
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Vandalism
  • Theft

Children In Need Of Protection Or Services

When children under the age of 10 commit a crime, they are typically referred to the child welfare program as children in need of protection or services (CHIPS). In some CHIPS cases, parents are found to be unable to effectively protect and care for their children. These cases may result in the termination of parental rights.

With more than two decades of experience, we understand juvenile law and have the skill to help our clients secure outcomes that will help them avoid lifelong consequences for youthful mistakes.
