Bracamonte Teen in Trouble

I will fight hard for your child. That’s a promise.

~A Chance at a Second Chance~

We all must face the consequences of our actions. Thankfully, most of us will never face the option of being locked behind bars. Even kids who willfully commit crimes are scared of going to jail.

One thing I really appreciate about Texas law is that it ensures that minors (kids between the ages of 10 and 16) will be tried in the juvenile justice system. And as the juvenile court is committed to redeeming minors, rather than just sending them to jail, these kids have a good chance at overcoming their offense and not carrying it forward.

Upon admission to detention, each juvenile receives a psychological evaluation and personal treatment plan. Program activities in Post Adjudication Long Term Detention include group counseling, weekly individual sessions and bi-weekly family sessions. In addition to other topics, each juvenile receives training in life skills, healthy family functioning, and adaptive coping strategies. Each child also receives a minimum of four hours of schooling each day.

Detention isn’t a pleasant experience, but it just might be the consequence needed to stop a juvenile from becoming a hardened criminal. If you find your child facing legal charges, be sure to gain legal representation — from me or another experienced lawyer — before your child is questioned. My ongoing training in juvenile social issues and law gives me the knowledge and tools needed to expertly serve as your child’s advocate.
