Kids make mistakes — that is an inevitability. But when mistakes border on illegal behavior or result in arrests, you will need an 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
- Heavy fines
- Community service
- License suspensions, and more.
If you or your child were arrested or under suspicion of a crime, contact Morgan Bourque — one of Texas’ top criminal defense attorneys. Morgan’s successful juvenile defense track record is highlighted by hundreds of dismissals and downgraded charges.
Morgan 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.
Mistakes can be made during arrests and investigations. From cases of mistaken identity, and being at the wrong place at the wrong time, to the mishandling of evidence, officers and witnesses are fallible. Morgan knows what errors or inconsistencies to look for and exploit, and can form a plan that can help keep you or your child from having to incur many of the penalties listed above.
Morgan has secured favorable outcomes in juvenile misdemeanors and felonies related to:
- DUI/DWI charges
- Disorderly conduct
- Violent crimes and assault
- Sex offenses
- Curfew and loitering
- Burglary and theft
- Drug possession, and more.
