Your Child Charged with a Crime of Violence

If you child is charged with a crime of violence, it is very important that you contact a defense attorney before they appear in court. If your child pleads guilty to, or is found guilty of, a crime of violence, they may be sentenced to a minimum mandatory one year in the Division of Youth Corrections (DYC). Your child has certain rights when he/she is accused of a crime of violence. Without an experienced defense attorney representing your child, you may be giving up certain rights without knowing the potential consequences.
