Gang-Related Offenses and Minors
Houston Juvenile Crime Defense Attorneys
If your child has been accused of a gang-related offense, it is crucial
that you work with an attorney who can protect his or her rights and work
toward a positive case result - one that does not involve a conviction
and criminal record. At
The Martinez Law Firm, we are committed to representing juvenile defendants throughout Houston
in the face of gang crime allegations.
Potential Penalties for Gang Activity
These offenses are often very serious, and we understand that providing
the highest quality legal service and personalized attention is of the
utmost importance. Although the juvenile justice system in Texas is generally
geared toward rehabilitation as opposed to punishment, gang crimes and
other serious felony crimes may place a juvenile in danger of harsh penalties.
Our law firm can offer you a confidential consultation to discuss the exact
circumstances that surround your son or daughter's charges. Your child
may have been accused of
theft, a weapons offense or any violent crime that may be considered to be related
to gang activity.
In these situations, your child may be in danger of facing such penalties as:
- Confinement in a juvenile detention center
- Community service
- Mandatory counseling, therapy or rehabilitation
If a minor is close to the age of 18 or has committed a felony offense,
he or she may be in danger of being tried as an adult. Ensuring you have
the best possible defense counsel for your child is of the utmost importance
in the face of allegations of any gang-related offense. Make sure your
child has the opportunity at a bright future free from a juvenile conviction
by involving a juvenile defense attorney immediately.
