Defending Your Child In The Face Of Drug Charges
Many juveniles in Collin County struggle with substance abuse issues. Kids are experimenting with alcohol and drugs at younger ages. Individual counties have the ability to create specialty courts, known as juvenile drug courts, to provide an alternative course to resolving drug charges, with a focus on education and rehabilitation. Collin and Tarrant counties have each created these specialty courts to give youthful offenders a second chance and to get back on the right track with their lives.
Helping Juveniles Pursue A Brighter Future
At Terri Daniel, Attorney at Law, PLLC, in McKinney, I take great pride in helping troubled juveniles and their families resolve legal issues without ever losing sight of the bigger picture. I understand that juveniles between the ages of 10 and 16 years old can make mistakes, give in to peer pressure or find themselves caught up in adverse consequences that lead to juvenile charges.
I also know that kids can develop substance abuse problems and an arrest or detention in the justice system can indicate that a deeper problem exists. I take the time to understand the legal issues involved, as well as the bigger picture to provide juveniles and families with straightforward legal counsel to obtain the most favorable outcome possible.
The juvenile justice system emphasizes rehabilitation generally. For juveniles who are referred to the juvenile drug court, youthful drug offenders and their families are given the opportunity to fix a substance abuse problem in a unique atmosphere aimed at solving the underlying addiction or substance abuse problem. The juvenile drug court program operates under the supervision of the Juvenile Probation Department and the courts, but provides a problem-solving atmosphere aimed at giving kids a brighter future.
