Juveniles (between the ages of 10 and 17 at the time of an offense) are treated differently than adults in the Texas legal system. Children don’t have the same basic understanding of the law as adults, nor do they have the same constitutional rights, so there are special legal protections for them. The law attempts to serve the best interest of children who go through the legal system in an effort to reform them and re-introduce them back into society rather than to punish them. It’s important that you hire an attorney who understands the Texas juvenile justice system and has the experience to defend your child, because your child’s future depends on it.
