Kalamazoo Juvenile Drug Offenses Attorney
Juvenile drug use is a big issue, not only in Kalamazoo but state and nation-wide. As a result, anytime a juvenile is caught using, possessing, dealing, or making/growing narcotics, charges are likely to result. Police and courts take drug crime seriously, and often see tough penalties as a way to scare offenders into not becoming repeat offenders. This poses a problem when penalties target innocent persons, and when penalties are far too excessive to be rehabilitative.
This is one of the many reasons why defense lawyers are so important.

Drug Offenses and Juvenile Defense Tactics in Kalamazoo
There are a number of drug offenses a juvenile can face, though the most common is drug possession. Possession with intent, drug dealing or delivery, and drug manufacture or cultivation are also charges commonly faced by offenders under the age of 17.
In defending against a drug crime conviction, the early stages of a case can be crucial. The less you say to police, the better, no matter what the details of your unique situation. Always contact a lawyer and learn more about what you should say and do to defend yourself.
In juvenile drug crime cases, there are so many different legal issues in play. Juvenile courts are not bound by the same legislation and sentencing guidelines that regular adult criminal courts are, which can lead to a wide variety of possible results. Beyond that, first time drug offenders, especially juveniles, are eligible for a number of sentencing options that are not normally offered to criminal offenders. It is crucial to be aware of the many defense options available to you, and to work with a lawyer early on in your case to determine what options you want to pursue. Grabel & Associates is available 24/7 so that you never have to wait to start fighting to protect your future. Contact us right away and let a qualified juvenile drug crime attorney begin to advise you as you move forward in your case.
Juvenile Court and Waiver to Adult Court
In the juvenile court system, a division of the family court, sentencing is often far more rehabilitative and actual jail time won’t be on the line (though institutionalization in a juvenile detention center is possible). Additionally, even those convicted are often placed on the juvenile consent calendar, and have their sentences deferred provided certain probation conditions are met.
