Lassiter will do everything they possibly can to protect him or her from the potentially devastating consequences of a conviction.
Sexual Assault Charges For Youth Offenders
Under most circumstances, youth offenders will face different sentencing guidelines than adults will—though some youth offenders may be sentenced as adults if the allegations are particularly severe. A number of circumstances will be considered when sentencing juvenile offenders, such as:
- What rehabilitative options are available
- The age of the defendant
- The age of the victim
Should a conviction be achieved against your child, he or she may avoid some of the harsher penalties associated with convictions for adults and instead be sentenced to enter intensive sex offender treatment with a licensed professional.
