The Importance of Hiring a Juvenile Criminal Defense Lawyer in Oklahoma

When seeking legal representation, it is in your best interest to hire an attorney who understands the intricacies of juvenile criminal law in Oklahoma City. Depending on the circumstances, a minor accused of a crime may be charged as a juvenile delinquent, a youthful offender, or (in some rare cases) an adult. Your age, the severity of the alleged offense, and the discretion of the prosecutor will determine how you are charged. 

Juvenile delinquents are not formally convicted and will carry out their sentences in juvenile detention facilities. They are often released when they turn 18. Youthful offenders are not typically released when they turn 18 and are instead transferred to adult facilities to finish their (often lengthy) sentences.  A skilled lawyer who is familiar with the state’s juvenile criminal process can work to negotiate lighter charges, and the Shoemake Law Firm is well-versed in how to effectively approach these cases.

Do not wait to get legal advice if you are a minor who has been accused of a crime. Call (405) 451-1372 or contact the firm online today.
