Protecting Minors’ Rights & Futures

Juvenile Crime Lawyers in Houston, TX

Young people in Texas may face an enormous range of juvenile criminal charges, including: theft, shoplifting, traffic violations, criminal mischief, possession of marijuana or other controlled substances, probation violations, robbery, arson, weapons charges, gang violence, rape and other juvenile sex crimes, and even murder. For more information on juvenile offenses, definitions, and penalties, see Texas Family Code, Title 3. Juvenile Justice Code.

Juvenile Defense: Recent Changes

Recently, juvenile prosecution is experiencing tremendous growth, and the State of Texas is now more willing to try juveniles as adults. The ultimate hope of the juvenile courts and justice system is that young people can be rehabilitated. Prosecuting juveniles as adults takes away that chance for rehabilitation by forcing them into situations with more serious consequences.

At Thiessen Law Firm, we never forget that a child is just that: a child. A criminal record – even a juvenile one – often harms a child far more than it benefits the state. When you work with a Houston juvenile crime lawyer at our firm, we will use all of the weapons in our arsenal to fight for a fair outcome in your or your child’s case. After all, the future is at stake and you should not have to settle for anything other than top-notch defense representation.
