If you are under 18 years old, you are considered a juvenile under Massachusetts law. You can be charged with many crimes in juvenile court, which places different penalties on youthful offenders than district court places on adult offenders.
Sometimes juvenile crimes can have an effect on an offender's school life as well as home life. When this happens, Mr. Barabino is an experienced school attorney representing children and teens in school expulsion hearings resulting from charges. These hearings often take place before the principal or superintendent and can have long-term consequences. Because they are serious, it is critical that they be handled effectively.
