Colorado Springs Juvenile Drug Crime Attorneys
Has Your Child Been Charged with a Drug Crime?
If your child has been arrested for a juvenile drug offense in Colorado, you're likely worried about their prospects at a successful future. Your biggest fear is that your child will feel the impact of their criminal case even throughout adulthood, and that they will lose out on important opportunities in education and consequently be at a considerable disadvantage when it comes to career development. However, such a scenario is far from inevitable.
Children sometimes make terrible mistakes, whether out of the misguided desire to rebel or due to bad influence, but it doesn't mean they should have to pay for it for the rest of their lives. The compassionate Colorado Springs juvenile crime defense lawyers at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C. understand this completely. That is why we will fight hard to get your child's slate wiped clean. For more information, call us today at (719) 475-2555.
Rehabilitation, Not Punishment
The juvenile justice system generally operates on the notion that children who commit crimes are not fully aware of the repercussions of their actions and thus should not receive the same considerations as an adult. Accordingly, juvenile drug offenders are usually offered treatment and rehabilitation and other “light” sentencing options in place of criminal penalties. However, this is not always the case.
Defending Your Child against Aggressive Prosecution
The prosecution may seek to make an example of your child by pursuing harsh criminal penalties; however, our legal team will not allow it. We will use the full extent of our skills and resources garnered from years and years of courtroom experience to counteract the prosecution's legal arguments and sway the court in your child's favor. Your child deserves better and we will do everything possible to make sure the judge and jury know it.
We Also Do Expungements in Colorado
Does your child already have a criminal record due to a past drug crime conviction? We may be able to pursue an “expungement” of the conviction, or have it sealed and vacated from the record, as if it never happened. If the action is successful, your child will not have to report the crime on applications for school, employment or military enlistment.
