I often have young clients who find themselves in bad situations. I think kids will do what their friends are doing. Unfortunately, sometimes they find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time and the consequences of that can affect them for the rest of their lives.
If your son or daughter finds himself or herself arrested or charged with a crime, it is very important that you speak with an experienced attorney to learn about how the charge or charges can affect their life. After meeting with an attorney and taking care of important legal issues, I suggest looking into a program like this one – The Reality Check Program with Larry Lawton. His DVD is very informative and I hear his live sessions are even better. Here is the link to his website – www.lawton911.com
I just finished watching the DVD and thought it was great. With any luck, one mistake can be forgiven by the criminal justice system. Many counties offer pretrial diversion programs, drug court programs, and other programs like teen court, which can all result in charges being dismissed and no criminal record. But children and young people have to understand that they get only one bite at the apple – and that’s if they are lucky!
