Morris County NJ Juvenile Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorneys with Offices in Morristown, New Jersey

The Juvenile Justice System in Morris County NJ
Juvenile charges are typically brought in the county where the juvenile resides rather than the county where the offense occurred. However, in appropriate cases, a judge will grant a motion to transfer the case to the county of the offense.
Juvenile trials are heard by a judge without a jury. The rules of trial in juvenile court are different from the rules in adult court. At sentencing, the judge has many options that are unavailable to adult defendants. The fact is that most juvenile cases are settled without going to trial. However, an experienced criminal defense attorney will be prepared to take a case to trial if doing so is in the client’s best interest.
