Attorney Roderman handles all types of juvenile offenses, including minor in possession, underage drinking, breaking and entering, trespassing, shopliftying, and vandalism.

Tree types of juvenile offenses

  • When a juvenile commits an offense which would be a felony if committed by an adult, the juvenile is charged with being delinquent.
  • If the juvenile commits an offense which would be a misdemeanor if committed by an adult, and it is the juvenile’s first offense, the juvenile is charged with being wayward.
  • A juvenile may also be charged with offenses called status offenses, which apply only to minors, such as truancy, disobedience, etc.

An action against a juvenile is not considered a criminal action and the juvenile, even if found guilty, will not have a criminal record. With proper counseling, the charges can often be minimized or punished with a lesser or compromised sentence. Many of the procedures are the same, however, as those for adults charged with a crime.

It is important to emphasize that I am very grateful for what you have done for me. I am very lucky to have met a person like yourself, not only are you a brilliant attorney you also kept my spirit up when the other attorney was condemning me.

Laura S.

After taking your advice and acting fast the end result was that the state did not even press charges. We realise having a seasoned, well-connected attorney as yourself is the only reason this charge was stopped dead in its tracks. We could not have dreamed of an outcome this amazing!
