Adolescence is a difficult stage of life. Many young people make poor decisions before they fully understand the impact those decisions could have on their life. In Texas, a child becomes individually responsible for delinquent conduct when they reach the age of 10.
The juvenile justice system is separate and distinct from the criminal justice system, and children do not face criminal convictions but are rather found "in need of supervision." The supervision that can be imposed ranges from probation to being placed in the custody of the Texas Youth Commission - a prison for juveniles.
If your child is facing allegations of delinquent conduct, it is imperative that you protect their future by contacting an experienced juvenile defense attorney.
