The juvenile justice system in Tennessee is different than its counterpart for adults. The penalties are different and incarceration is run by different state agencies than adult courts. Every juvenile crime is serious and carries the potential for rather severe consequences. It is important to have legal representation with experience in representing juveniles charged with crimes, after all one thing is the same; the State still must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt and juveniles enjoy the same constitutional rights as adults.
An experienced attorney can ensure that all your or your child’s rights are protected while they are going through this harrowing experience.
