Juveniles and youth crime
As part of our expertise in police investigations and criminal defence, we advise juveniles (young people under the age of 18) who are subject to an investigation for a criminal offence or who are being prosecuted in the youth court.
For a young person as well as for their parents or guardians, this can be a very daunting and stressful experience. Our specialist youth crime lawyers will steer you through the process and procedure and, where possible, seek to persuade the authorities not to prosecute. We are committed to achieving the best outcome for our clients and to providing them with all the guidance and assistance they require. Young people in particular need to feel reassured and supported through this difficult time.
Our lawyers have expertise in acting for young people facing investigation and prosecution for a variety of offences including serious sexual offences, drugs, public order, common assault, ABH, GBH, theft and fraud. On many occasions we have successfully made representations on our young client’s behalf to divert them away from prosecution.
We have in recent times provided advice and representation to a number of youth clients in relation to offences of possession and distribution of indecent images (including via “sexting” and social media) as well as those accused of committing revenge porn offences. We are also experienced in navigating the ancillary issues connected with investigations of this nature, including school authority action and the involvement of social services.
We are available 24 hours a day and can help from the moment of arrest or initial contact by the police, providing advice and representation at the police station, drafting representations to the CPS and in all subsequent court hearings.More
