Las Vegas Juvenile Sex Crime Lawyer
Trusted Attorneys for Minors Accused of Serious Crimes
Many people believe that a juvenile will not be tried as an adult and that an offense allegedly committed by a juvenile will not have adult consequences. For the most part, juvenile records are sealed and judges are not as harsh on juveniles. However, juvenile sex crimes may bring serious complications and consequences to the life of a young adult. If your minor child has been charged with a sex crime, it is vital that you consult with a Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer to discuss the possible consequences you could be facing.

Penalties for Juvenile Sex Offenses in Nevada
Juvenile crimes are supposed to stay in the juvenile system, but something different often happens with sex offenses. Because crimes of a sexual nature are taken so seriously in the eyes of the law, the proceedings and consequences for these offenses are more severe. At Turco & Draskovich, we help families and their minor children understand the seriousness of a sex crime conviction, even for a juvenile.
- The consequences for a juvenile sex offense can include:
- Time in a juvenile corrections facility or jail, if tried as an adult.
- When the child turns 18 or 21, they may be required to register as a sex offender.
- Restitution to the victim, probation, and community service.
