Selling or distributing drugs is a serious juvenile criminal offense. A Los Angeles juvenile defense lawyer or attorney at Okabe & Haushalter may be able to help you if your child is facing accusations involving drug sale or distribution.
Because drug sale/distribution charges may also involve allegations of gang affiliation or other crimes, a juvenile facing drug sale charges may receive enhanced penalties if convicted. This includes incarceration and probation. In some serious drug crime cases, particularly those involving violence, a minor may also face being tried as an adult in adult court rather than facing lesser penalties in juvenile court.
Our Los Angeles juvenile criminal defense lawyers understand how important it is to a child’s future to provide him/her with superior defense representation in the face of serious criminal charges. We utilize our experience and aggressive defense tactics in this field to help juvenile offenders receive minimum penalties or have charges dropped before a drug sale case has the opportunity to reach juvenile court.
If your child has been arrested or detained in accordance with drug sale or distribution charges, you will need a Los Angeles juvenile defense attorney on your side who has the experience with California juvenile court and drug court in particular – in order to offer your child the best opportunity at a fair and positive outcome for his/her case.
