Juvenile Delinquency Defense Assistance In Minneapolis
The juvenile justice system requires that the least restrictive means available be used to restore a child to law-abiding behavior. Extended juvenile jurisdiction (EJJ) and adult certification expose children to much more severe consequences. If your child is facing repercussions as a result of alleged criminal activity, it is crucial to have a lawyer with a broad knowledge of programming handling the case.

If Christa Groshek does not agree with the state’s recommendations, she is skilled at arguing for a different solution and steering a case into delinquency rather than EJJ or adult certification.

Protecting Your Child’s Reputation
When a child over the age of 16 is charged with a felony, information about the case will be available to the public even if the charges are reduced to a low-level misdemeanor. The only way to prevent this is to prevent felony charges from being brought.
