A juvenile arrest and conviction for theft and other property crimes is a serious matter. Repeated shoplifting or crime involving significant damage to property often indicates emotional trouble and can serve as a gateway to more serious, violent crime. At the Connecticut Law Offices of Daniel P. Weiner, we're committed to helping young people get a second chance.
In property-related crimes, we may be able to convince the court to reduce the charges or sentence against a teen in exchange for community service hours and a willingness to seek counseling. As a criminal defense lawyer with over 34 years of experience, Daniel P. Weiner understands the juvenile court system, what judges and case officers are looking for when trying to turn a teen around, and what needs to be done to avoid lock-up in juvenile detention.
If your son or daughter has been arrested for theft or other property crimes, contact Connecticut juvenile defense attorney Daniel P. Weiner today to schedule a free confidential consultation to discuss your case.

Juveniles and Property Crime - The Importance of Intervening Early
While most property crimes involving juveniles are misdemeanor offenses, they're often an indication that a teen is troubled or "hanging out with the wrong crowd." Underage drinking and smoking "weed" are often a prequel to acts of vandalism, car theft, or even burglary. That's why it's important to work within the juvenile system in order to get a young person the help he or she needs to avoid graduating to more serious crime and becoming entangled in the adult criminal justice system.
As your attorney, Mr. Weiner understands how to work with judges and probation officers to get a troubled teen the help he or she needs. Unlike the adult criminal justice system, the juvenile court emphasizes intervention and rehabilitation. Depending on the circumstances of your son's or daughter's case, it may be possible to have the sentence or charges reduced or dismissed altogether. This can provide a young person with the second chance they need to reconsider their priorities and think more about their future.
