Patterns in Juvenile Drug Cases

Patterns in Juvenile Drug Cases

Strong Protection for the Rights of Young People Charged With Prescription Drug Crimes

When your child faces a prescription drug charge, it is important to seek help from a compassionate and dedicated juvenile criminal lawyer in Idaho.

The young offender spends a night at a juvenile detention center before he or she can see a judge the next morning. The youthful offender then admits or denies the allegations and the matter proceeds similar to an adult proceeding. The young offender has no right to a jury trial.

Attorney J. Scott Dowdy can be your juvenile’s voice in the process and works to ensure that they get the outcome that is in their best interests.
