Juvenile Crime in Jefferson County, Colorado

Juveniles will think they are invincible, untouchable when it comes to crime, until they are facing the life-altering consequences of a serious conviction like First-degree arson or Minor in Possession of Alcohol. Teenagers may not understand the seriousness of their actions, might see their behavior as innocent "fun", peer pressure may have played a huge factor, or underage drinking could have affected their better judgment. We know that mistakes happen, and we do not believe that your child's future should have to suffer for a lapse in judgment.

Juvenile Definition: Who is Considered a Juvenile in Denver, Colorado?

In Denver, the definition of a Juvenile is a "Child" meaning "a person under eighteen years of age" (C.R.S. 19-1-103). A Juvenile Delinquent means "a juvenile who has been found guilty of a delinquent act." While the Colorado legal system is more forgiving towards children, repeat offenders or those who commit more serious crimes, especially sexual offenses, can suffer life-long consequences for criminal convictions.

Different Types of Juvenile Offenders in Douglas County: Special Offenders

Other, more serious Special Offenders listed are Repeat Juvenile Offender, Violent Juvenile Offender, and Aggravated Juvenile Offender. If your child has been arrested, we offer a free initial consultation to help you understand the situation and see how we can help your child.

Social Media and Juvenile Crime in Adams County

In Adams County and throughout Colorado, new technology has paved the way for new underage crimes. Social media and apps provide a false sense of a barrier that makes teenagers think they can get away with things like cyber bullying, harassment, or sending nude images to one another. Other cyber crimes include piracy or illegal pornography. Make sure your child understands what is and what is not permissible, and the penalties of internet crimes, so they will not make irreversible mistakes.
