Experienced Criminal Defense For Persons Under 21

Criminal Defense For High School And College Students

If your child has been charged with an age-specific crime — such as underage drinking or a statutory sex crime — you need to secure experienced counsel immediately. Without an accomplished trial lawyer protecting your child's interests, there is an increased likelihood that the charges will result in a conviction and criminal record that will haunt your child for the rest of his or her life.

At Green & Delan, LLC, we want your child to experience all that life has to offer and to have a full and rewarding career. To help you accomplish this, we provide the skilled criminal defense representation that is necessary to combat criminal offenses that affect those under 21. When you hire us, your child's case will be handled personally from start to finish by attorney Larry Delan, a former prosecutor with more than two decades of experience.

Typical Under-21 Criminal Charges

The most frequently charged criminal offenses that are tied to a person's age include:

  • Under-21 drug crimes: Those who are charged with drug crimes, regardless of their age, face significant sentences if convicted.
  • Underage drinking: In addition to the fines and other court-imposed consequences of an underage drinking conviction, the criminal record a conviction generates can harm your child now and into the future.
  • Sex crimes: Due to mandatory reporting requirements at high schools, there has been an increase in the number of minors being prosecuted for statutory sex offenses (such as a high school senior having sex with a freshman). A sex crimes arrest on your son's or daughter's record can be more burdensome than a conviction for most other types of under-21 crimes.
  • Traffic tickets: Even a seemingly minor traffic ticket should be treated seriously to give your child the best chance of moving ahead with a clean record.

In addition to these and all other criminal offenses that take an alleged offender's age into account, we are equipped to defend teens and college-aged individuals against other charges such as assault, theft, vandalism and other offenses.
