It is not uncommon for teenagers to experiment with drugs, whether they do it because they are bored, curious, overcome by peer pressure or possibly even depressed. Some may even become involved in dealing drugs after they get caught up in the wrong crowd or because they are being taken advantage of by adult drug offenders. Whatever the situation is, all it takes is one time of getting caught for juvenile's future and reputation to be placed in jeopardy. In some cases, the juvenile might have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time, which led to him or her being falsely accused. In either case, the minor who is facing drug charges will need to have his or her rights protected by competent legal counsel.
I am here for you and your juvenile. Call (866) 760-6430 for trusted counsel!
My name is Ryan E. Gilbert, and I am an East Brunswick drug crime lawyer who represents minors in various types of juvenile offense cases, including those that involve drug charges. Whether a juvenile is accused of a crime involving marijuana, serious narcotics or someone else's prescription drugs, I can provide strategic legal representation!
I can handle the following common juvenile offenses and more:
When minors are found guilty of drug charges, they can end up suffering from penalties such as probation, house arrest or confinement in a juvenile detention center. They can also suffer from damage to their records, which can affect them for years to come. While being young should not serve as a pass to do whatever you want, it is important for our society to remember that minors are still mentally maturing and are prone to making poor decisions. It is oftentimes much more effective for young offenders to receive rehabilitation and a second chance rather than harsher sentencing.
Do you have a minor child who is facing drug charges? If so, I can fight to prove your child's innocence or to seek a less severe punishment on his or her behalf. In some cases, juvenile offenders can avoid adjudications of guilt by completing rehabilitative programs and/or other probation requirements.
