Juvenile Crimes and Charges in New Mexico
With several exceptions, juvenile crimes are brought to the juvenile courts. Sentencing is geared more toward rehabilitation than punishment. However, the consequences are still serious and can have far-reaching effects on your child’s future.
Penalties are dependent upon the crime, but can include:
- Court-mandated therapy
- Time in juvenile detention
- Community service
A juvenile record could affect your child’s ability to receive a scholarship, apply to colleges and could even affect future career opportunities.
Call (505) 842-1440 to speak with a criminal defense attorney who knows the ins/outs of NM juvenile crime law or schedule a consultation here.
