Defending Juveniles Charged With Sex Crimes In Minnesota
Many people believe that juvenile offenses will not have adult consequences and will simply go away when a child turns 18, but this is not the case. Juvenile sex crimes can result in being charged as an adult and being sentenced to prison and/or having to register as a sex offender, sometimes for life.
To protect the rights of your child, it is crucial to seek an attorney who fully appreciates the potential consequences of criminal sexual conduct charges.
Juvenile defense lawyer Christa Groshek has extensive experience in both the adult and juvenile justice systems, including representing juveniles facing adult charges. She understands the unique needs of minors and the strategies necessary to protect their futures.
Skilled Defense Against Juvenile Sex Crime Accusations
Even though juvenile crimes are expected to be handled in the juvenile court system, violent crimes such as criminal sexual conduct often lead to extended juvenile jurisdiction (EJJ), where a juvenile faces both juvenile and adult charges. Adult certification can also be sought to try a juvenile as an adult. A conviction after adult certification could result in prison time and being required to register as a sex offender.
While most criminal defense lawyers have handled sex crimes cases, they are entirely different at the juvenile level. Christa Groshek understands the complex procedures and knows what motions to file to protect the rights of her clients.
