As a parent, when a child is facing a life changing criminal offense, we can feel helpless and disappointed.  It is important to understand that there are several defenses to a crime and just like adults, minors’ rights should be protected and they should have the right to competent counsel.  You should never allow your child to speak to law enforcement without the presence of an attorney.

Hiring an experienced juvenile criminal defense attorney can make the difference in your child’s future.

There are several types of crimes that a juvenile can be charged with.  Attorney Joseph Arnone has several years of experience in Macomb County and other counties’ courts defending minors in these and other crimes:

  • Assault (fighting)
  • Status Offenses of Runaways, Incorrigibles, Truants and Wayward Minor Status Offenses
  • Theft (stealing money, auto theft, burglary, shoplifting)
  • Violations of the Michigan Vehicle Code
  • Violations of Personal Protection Orders
  • Registration on The Sex offenders Registration Act (SORA)
  • Setting Aside a Juvenile Adjudication or Criminal Conviction
  • Weapons offenses
Michigan Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney


When a juvenile is charged with a crime, the court system has many opportunities that may allow the charge to either be diverted or dismissed if the juvenile meets a certain criteria.  This is especially true in the instances where a juvenile has no prior record.

The likelihood of a juvenile’s case being dismissed or diverted is largely based upon the support and guidance of the parent or guardian.  The court system can be intimidating and confusing.  An experienced juvenile criminal defense attorney will not only advocate for your child, but also assist you with your responsibilities.
