Being arrested as a juvenile is far more serious than in past generations. Adjudications of delinquency count against juveniles who later run into trouble with the law as young adults. Juveniles are generally prosecuted for the same exact crimes as adults, but the rules, procedures, and penalties are much different than in adult court, thus requiring an experienced lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the juvenile courts system. Ms. Fore has defended many juveniles in juvenile court as well as in adult court. A strong legal defense gives a juvenile the best chance of keeping their record clean and protecting their future.
