Child Arrested in Connecticut? Tips on What to Do Next

  • Advise your child that he or she doesn’t have to make any statement to the police. Even if your child did give a statement by waiving the right to remain silent, the evidence may be suppressed. Minors cannot waive their rights.
  • If you do submit to an investigation, make sure you have a lawyer present. Juvenile courts operate under a completely different set of rules. Police may tell you one thing, but the reality or truth about your child’s rights may be completely different. I will advise you about juvenile rights.
  • Talk to witness and gather contact information. Anything you can do to help your own cause will be a great help in juvenile court. As your attorney, I will follow up on the witnesses and conduct a complete investigation to prepare a strong defense case.
  • If you have received a summons to appear in juvenile court, talk to an experienced attorney immediately. I provide a free consultation to assess your case and explain the process you are facing.
