The Iyer Law Office LLC, Denver, Colorado
Juvenile Delinquency Attorney: Delinquency is a legal term for criminal behavior carried out by a juvenile. Delinquent behavior is divided into two categories: status offenses and delinquency offenses.
Status offenses are those acts that would not be considered offenses if committed by an adult, such as school truancy, running away from home, alcohol possession or use, or curfew violations.
Juvenile Delinquency offenses involve destruction or theft of property, commission of violent crimes against persons, illegal weapon possession, or the possession or sale of illegal drugs.
If you are convicted of certain crimes when a juvenile and you are an illegal alien or a legal resident but not a U.S. citizen, you could be deported or denied continued legal status in the U.S. by Homeland Security (Immigration Department – ICE).
