If your child has been accused of a crime, it can be absolutely terrifying for you as a parent. Consequences like jail time or a permanent criminal record of a conviction can follow your child for years to come.
No matter what the charge is, your child deserves a strong defense from an experienced criminal defense team.
What Can You Do?
There are a few things you can do to prepare your child’s case for a favorable outcome:
- Do not speak to the police, detectives, or investigators. That goes for yourself and your child. These individuals’ job is to investigate and ensure a conviction. Neither you nor your child should speak to them without an attorney present.
- Preserve any evidence. There may be an opportunity to produce evidence that may be favorable to your child’s defense, such as text messages, photographs, or hospital records. You should ensure that anything that could be of use is preserved.
- Get an attorney. This is the most important thing you can do for anyone who has been accused of a crime, including and especially for your child. An attorney will ensure that your child’s rights are protected throughout the law enforcement process.
Parents play an essential role in the defense of their children; however, it is important to realize that when charged with a crime they are part of a team and it is crucial to consult with a criminal defense attorney.
