First Time Juvenile Offender Diversion Programs

Being accused of a juvenile crime can have a devastating effect on your child. Labeling a child as a delinquent can drive a wedge between the child and positive influences in their life. It is critical that a Juvenile case be handled with extreme care and caution by an experienced Lake County Juvenile defense attorney. Our attorneys are former Assistant State Attorneys and have handled numerous Juvenile cases in Central Florida. Each case needs to be evaluated for possible defenses and alternative resolutions that can avoid a criminal record.

A common alternative resolution is diversion. Diversion allows the prosecutor to request sanctions in exchange for dropping the charges once the sanctions are completed. This avoids a criminal record for your child. Diversions are usually limited to first time juvenile offenders. If your child is not eligible for diversion we can fight the charges and look for alternative resolutions that allow your child to be able to seal or expunge their record.  If the charges are dropped and your child has no prior record the case can be expunged. Many cases that are not dropped can be sealed. Some serious charges are not eligible for record sealing. An experienced Lake County juvenile attorney understands what charges cannot be sealed and can fight to get the charges amended to something that will not ruin your child’s life.
