How Are Juvenile Crimes Handled In Arizona?

Crimes committed by juveniles in Arizona should not be considered any less serious than those committed by adults, however, they are definitely treated somewhat differently in Arizona than crimes committed by adults. If you or someone you know is facing a juvenile crime in Arizona, it shouldn’t be taken lightly. Get in touch with a criminal defense attorney immediately who understands how to defend juvenile crimes.

Once you contact a juvenile crime defense attorney in Arizona, you and your attorney will work on a defense strategy to defend the juvenile crime. Many firms offer flexible payment plans to juveniles and their parents so they can seek justice without any issues. To be able to defend a juvenile crime in Arizona, it is important to first understand the charges faced in these type of crimes. Juvenile crimes have been in existence since ages, and laws have been in place to handle juvenile crimes since decades. Juvenile crime laws are strongly enforced to reduce the rate of crimes over the years. Many people have a misconception that juvenile crime charges are not as serious as charges for other crimes. However, that is not true. In reality, the convicted defendant could face several years of incarceration if they are convicted of a serious crime.

When it comes to treating juvenile crimes in Arizona, there is a historical difference in the ways these crimes are handled. Many counties have a separate court system for juvenile cases. Even in rural areas, juvenile crime cases are treated differently than adult cases. Moreover, trials for juveniles have been heard by judges instead of juries. This is due to the fact that juvenile records are generally sealed and are not made open to the public.

There is however a troubling trend seen in juvenile crime cases. If the alleged crime is violent in nature, which includes rape or violent gang activity, or homicide, a large number of juveniles involved in these cases are charged like any adult. The punishment may even include the possibility of decades of imprisonment if the defendant is convicted of the crime. Securing a strong criminal defense attorney is important when facing a juvenile crimes charge in Arizona. Many criminal defense attorneys and law firms offer a free initial consultation session.

How are juvenile crimes investigated in Arizona?

Juvenile crimes are investigated much like other crimes in Arizona. The first step is a complaint received by the police who will then investigate the matter and complete a preliminary report. Law enforcement will then pursue the case and relentlessly seek the prime suspect or suspects in the case after identification. The crime scene is also carefully examined and witnesses are questioned. Finally, the suspects are questioned who may have allegedly committed the crime.

The important thing to be careful about in juvenile crime cases if that the rights of the individual are not violated. Young people are easily intimidated by police pressure and they also do not fully understand their constitutional rights. Therefore, contacting an attorney is very important in juvenile crime cases.
