Cherokee County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Any allegation of participating in criminal activity is a serious matter. Sadly, many people who face accusations of criminal activity are young adults or teenagers. After being accused of an offense, a child or young adult might worry about how this will impact the rest of their life. They might fear the consequences, what their family and friends will think, and whether they will have less opportunities to succeed.  Even if these are not the teen or young adult’s concerns, many parents or loved ones have these concerns for them.

Our team members also understand your situation as an accused teen or young adult as well as the long-term implications that this can carry in your life.  We focus on identifying your concerns, as well as concerns you make not consider, to develop a strategy with you that will be focused on your concerns. A Cherokee County criminal defense lawyer could provide more information about your options, assess the charges against you, and help you protect your future.

I made a lot of poor choices when I was younger. While I probably had more run-ins with the police and other authority figures between the ages of 13 and 22 than many people have throughout their lives, I was fortunate that I was never charged with anything more than minor traffic offenses. In hindsight, I see how my life could have been derailed if things had gone a little differently for me. My mission is to protect the futures of our younger generation from their mistakes so that they can achieve their full potential.

- Paul Ghanouni, Founder & Managing Attorney

What Crimes are Common Amongst Teens and Young Adults?

Those accused of crimes under the age of 17 are generally charged in Juvenile Court, while those 17 and older are charged in adult criminal courts.  Teenagers have the same obligation as adults to comply with the state’s criminal code. Because of this, police officers can charge teenagers who they believe have committed a criminal or delinquent act, and the individual’s age and charges determine whether the case begins in juvenile court or one of the multiple adult criminal courts.

Some alleged criminal acts are more common among young adults or teens, such as underage drinking, illegal drug possession, shoplifting, theft, property damage, or fighting related offenses, such as assault or battery. Depending on the nature of the charges and the court the case is heard, the accused might face an impacted criminal record or need to spend time in an adult or juvenile detention facility. This could be emotionally damaging and stressful for an entire family.

Fortunately, our Cherokee County team understands the legal nuances of fighting these various offenses and could work hard to find the best criminal defense strategy for each client’s circumstances.
