Juvenile Defense Attorney Lake Charles

It isn’t that only adults commit crimes. Teens can also break the law. Those under the age of 17 cannot be held responsible for crimes. In such cases, the law focuses more on rehabilitation than punishment. For juveniles, the punishment includes verbal warnings, fines, community service, counseling, and probation.
