Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile Criminal Defense In Akron

Aggressive Criminal Defense By Former Prosecutors & Police Can Make A Difference

Juvenile crime is on the rise in Ohio and the penalties are become stiffer and stiffer for juveniles that are adjudicated or found guilty of crimes. The penalties not only result in a juvenile criminal record but may include: fines, court costs, community service or confinement.

A juvenile is considered anyone who is charged with an offense prior to his or her 18th birthday. However, the juvenile court can sentence a juvenile to the Department of Youth Services up until their 21st birthday. In addition, the State of Ohio can “bind” a juvenile over to the grand jury, if the crime is egregious, and have that individual tried as an adult.

The attorneys at Suhre & Associates include FORMER PROSECUTORS AND A FROMER POLICE OFFICER. Having been on the “other side of the law” gives our attorneys an invaluable insight as to the way your child’s case will make its way through the juvenile court system.

We begin your child’s representation with sitting down with you and getting a complete play by play of the facts. Then, we file a motion for discovery which allows us to assess all the evidence the State has against your child. In doing so, we are able to determine where the strengths of the case lie and what theory of litigation we can develop to overcome those strengths.

In turn, we also determine the weaknesses in the case. By exploiting those weaknesses, we may be able to warrant a reduction to a lesser charge, enter into a diversion program which ultimately leads to a dismissal of the charge, or be acquitted at trial.

The days of getting a fine and a slap on the wrist are over for juveniles adjudicated or convicted of crimes in Ohio. So, call Suhre & Associates, LLC at 330-510-5668 for a FREE CONSULTATION.

DUI Case

A Relieved Client

“I went to court thinking I would just get driving privileges and still be under suspension for some time. Rob was able to get the entire ALS suspension waived and most of the court fees waived as well. Was placed under 6 months probation, couldnt have asked for a better outcome. Rob did a phenomenal job. He is very knowledgeable and accessible, and I would recommend him to anyone.”

DUI Case

A Grateful Client

“Rob is very knowledgeable in his area. His expertise and advice were unsurpassed. I not only had extreme confidence in Rob’s ability but was able to put my mind at ease while we went through this process. Rob was able to work with the prosecuting attorney and then get agreement from the Judge to dismiss several charges and plead to a 1st DUI. I cannot express the gratitude I have for Rob. I realize that he is being paid for his service, but his attitude is like none I’ve experienced when dealing with an attorney for this type of matter. He was not judgmental but caring.”
