Juvenile Crime Defense Lawyers in The Woodlands
Helping Minors in Montgomery County Avoid Serious Criminal Penalties
Kids make mistakes — that is an inevitability. But when mistakes border on illegal behavior or result in arrests, you will need a juvenile attorney experienced in defending against juvenile criminal charges.
Juvenile crime penalties can be severe, and without adequate representation in and out of court, you or your child may be at risk of:
Jail time, if charged as an adult
Time spent in juvenile detention
License suspensions, and more.
If you or your child were arrested or under suspicion of a crime, Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law can protect your child’s future. Our legal team’s successful defense track record is highlighted by hundreds of dismissals and downgraded charges.
As an attorney for juveniles, Attorney Morgan Bourque is a former Texas prosecutor who has handled juvenile crimes from both sides of the courtroom. For years, he has represented youths (and their parents/guardians) accused of various offenses and has specific insight into crime scene investigations, procedures and evidence. Based on his insider’s perspective, he is often able to anticipate the actions that the opposing side may take and build an even stronger defense.

What are Texas’s Juvenile Laws?
A minor can be charged in a Texas juvenile court if he/she committed a crime on his/her 10th birthday. A minor under 17 years of age is considered a juvenile. Once a minor becomes 17, he/she can be charged as an adult and end up in the adult criminal justice system.
The juvenile justice system is designed to rehabilitate minors, rather than punish them for their crimes. While penalties often consist of fines, community service, license suspension, restitution, and other penalties besides being locked up in a juvenile detention facility, if a minor is a re-offender or commits a violent crime, then he/she may serve time in a facility.
