If your child has been accused of a crime, it's a nightmare come to life — but a juvenile defense attorney can help you get through it. During the last few decades, scientists have discovered so much more about brain development in minors. We now know that teenagers' brains function differently from the average adult brain, particularly in regard to their decision-making ability.
Yet, in spite of our knowledge about the adolescent brain, many youths are tried as adults. The Law Office Of Justin T.
