When a child or teenager is facing juvenile drug charges, there can be serious consequences. In addition to probation, possible detention and fines, a juvenile may have his or her driver’s license suspended. For many juveniles, this seriously affects their ability to work and go to school. Even if a kid was just experimenting for the first time, he or she can be charged with an offense. If a juvenile is in the same room as other people openly using drugs, he or she can be charged with a crime.
We can help. Sutnick & Sutnick Attorneys at Law works closely with parents and kids to obtain successful results for drug charges. We will help balance the seriousness of being charged with a crime with the need to protect a juvenile’s future.

Different Kids Need Different Things
Was your son or daughter caught in possession of marijuana or a prescription drug? Was your child caught selling drugs at school? Our law firm will look at the options that will help your child, given his or her specific charges and personality. For example, kids can benefit from:
- Drug programs
- Anger management

Sometimes juveniles charged with drug crimes are simply not guilty. They did not do anything wrong, and they need an attorney to help sort through and analyze the facts. We are skilled defense attorneys who can help defend your child’s rights and future.
The Juvenile System Ensures Privacy
Juvenile court is a private matter. The only people allowed in the courtroom are the judge, the juvenile, the parents, the criminal defense attorney, the prosecutor and the people working for the court. The general public is not permitted to enter juvenile proceedings. Additionally, juvenile records are sealed, and your child’s background will not show up in a regular background check.
