Juvenile Felony Defense Attorney in Minneapolis

We often hear that the crimes our children commit are "sealed" and will not affect their futures. They are children, after all, and deserve the chance to become productive adults.

Reality isn't quite so simple. In fact, if a juvenile over the age of 16 is charged with a felony crime in Minnesota, his or her record will be made public, essentially negating the benefits of sealing juvenile records. A juvenile convicted of a felony could face lifelong challenges similar to those faced by an adult convicted of a felony crime: difficulty finding jobs, renting apartments and even applying for government loans.

If your child faces felony juvenile crime charges in Minneapolis or surrounding areas, put an experienced juvenile defense lawyer on your side. Contact Groshek Law today at 612-424-5829 or toll free at 888-721-1056.
