Juvenile Crime Attorneys in Phoenix

Your Child Could Be Tried As an Adult

Juvenile in handcuffs - Phoenix Juvenile Crime LawyerWhen a person under the age of 18 is arrested for a crime, they are usually processed separately in court.Penalties are also far less severe and include:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Counseling
  • Community service

These repercussions are in place of jail or prison sentences. This is due to the belief that, with such rehabilitation, a child will be far less likely to commit another crime in the future.

Certain circumstances, however, could justify the trial of a child as an adult. The Maricopa County Superior Court website states that juvenile delinquents between the ages of 15 and 18 shall be tried as adults if they commit any of the following crimes:

Even if they did not commit such a crime, a child could still be tried as an adult if the prosecution motions for transfer due to probable cause and the protection of the community based on the circumstances of the offense. An adolescent may also be tried if they have two previous trials in the Juvenile Court for felony and are arrested for another felony. The County Attorney decides if the youth should be tried as an adult.
