Arizona Juvenile Defense Attorney Protects the Future of Minors
Helping families keep their children’s cases out of adult courts
The differences between having a minor’s case adjudicated in juvenile court as opposed to adult court are staggering given the leniency and overall goals of the juvenile system. Juvenile court cases are generally civil matters that focus on treatment and rehabilitation, while the adult system seeks to punish offenders. The Law Offices of Richard C. Bock fights to keep juveniles out of detention centers and defends against charges of delinquency. Having an aggressive and experienced attorney represent you helps keep your children in juvenile court where records are sealed upon reaching adulthood.
What offenses are dealt with in Arizona juvenile courts?
Juvenile crimes encompass a variety of offenses, some of which are status offenses based on the offender’s age while others are criminal offenses regardless of age. Defense attorney Richard C. Bock assists the courts and case workers during the pre-filing of charges phase, attempting to prevent charges from ever being filed. If filed, he compassionately defends juveniles during detention, jurisdiction and disposition hearings. Mr. Bock has real-world experience dealing with an array of juvenile charges related to:
- Vandalism and criminal trespass
- Gang-related activities
- Shoplifting and other theft crimes
- Possession of alcohol and underage drinking
