Keeping Cases in Juvenile Court
In Minnesota, the juvenile court’s focus is on rehabilitating individuals rather than punishing them.
However, if the alleged crime is serious the government may attempt to move the case to adult criminal court. A juvenile could end up serving a sentence in an adult jail or prison. The goal is often to keep the cases in Juvenile Court.
When facing these serious allegations, you only want an experience lawyer handling your case. Schedule your free case evaluation with Mr. Gerlach by calling the office at (218)722-1000 or writing us here.
