Representing Juveniles and Young Adults in Trouble with the Law in Norwalk, Connecticut
Protecting your child's future when trouble happens
At the Law Offices of John P. Thygerson, LLC, we understand that children sometimes encounter trouble. And as parents, we know the worries that you face when your son or daughter makes a mistake that could affect their future. The strong juvenile justice system in Connecticut is supposed to protect your child's legal and constitutional rights — but that does not always happen.
Taking your child's defense seriously for the child’s well-being and your own
Since the juvenile justice system is supposed to protect children, many parents make the following assumptions about it that just are not true:
- Juvenile courts are fairer than adult courts. As with adults, if a child does not have an effective defense, the prosecutor's version of events and facts controls the outcome.
- Judges protect children. The court may not suggest alternatives such as diversion programs, treatments and other opportunities. Instead, your minor child may spend a year — or more — in juvenile detention, and adult children may face jail or prison time.
- It will "go away." Unfortunately, criminal records do not just disappear at the age of 18 or 21. The record can affect college scholarships, careers, university admissions and driving privileges.
Working with our sophisticated juvenile criminal defense attorney at the Law Offices of John P. Thygerson means that you and your child can count on someone to help you through this difficult time and aim for the most positive results.
