Patel is pleased to offer legal advice and representation for young offenders facing criminal offence charges. The Mississauga criminal law firm focuses specifically on criminal law matters, crimes, bail hearings, and other related legal matters including court hearings and trials throughout the Ontario criminal court and legal system. —
It is important for people to remember their children are bound to the same laws adults are in Canada, and when they break those laws, they can be charged for criminal offences. Unlike adult offenders, there are specific proceedings and processes for charging a youth offender with a criminal offence that are outlined in the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA).
However, even with special legal requirements and processes in place, youths still require qualified and legal representation from a criminal defence law firm in Mississauga, like Passi & Patel. According to the law firm’s co-founding partner, Jay Passi, “Far too often parents assume their child will be fine, regardless of the charges they are facing. They figure since they are under the age of 18, the outcomes for their actions will not be that serious if they are found guilty or take a plea agreement.”
While the legal systems does tend to be more lenient on young offenders for certain offences, with others, it can be equally as harsh had the crime been committed by an adult. Parents should never gamble on their children’s future and assume everything will work out on its own. To ensure the most appropriate and best outcomes for youths, it is vital to obtain sound legal advice and representation throughout the proceedings until the matter is fully resolved.
In addition, in certain situations, the youth’s criminal record does not always seal upon their 18th birthday. There are special cases where the criminal record can remain open, without the help from Passi & Patel.
