In the State of South Carolina, a juvenile charged with a crime does not
have the same right to a jury trial as does an adult. Their case is heard
before a family court judge who has the power to sentence your child up
to their 21st birthday depending upon the offense. Sentences given are
dependent upon the evidence presented, your child's past criminal
history, your child's school record, as well as parental involvement.
The Department of Juvenile Justice is actively involved in the process
and it is imperative that you have an experienced criminal defense attorney
by your child's side so that their rights are protected and their
case is put forward in the most positive light. I am a former state prosecutor
and criminal defense attorney who has had experience on both sides of
the courtroom aisle prosecuting and defending juveniles in family court.
