When drug crimes charges are filed against juveniles in Denver, the repercussions can be devastating, particularly if a conviction (known in juvenile cases as an adjudication) is ultimately handed down in the case.
While an adjudication on drug crime charges can result in juveniles being detained in juvenile detention facilities for years (potentially until they are 21 years old), it can also seriously impact their future in terms of whether they are able to get into or attend college, secure student or other loans, or secure future employment.
As a result, it’s critical that, in the event you or your child is charged with a drug crime, you work with an experienced lawyer to ensure that your rights are fully protected and that you have the best chances of:
- Getting evidence against you thrown out of court
- Getting the drug charges reduced
- Getting the drug charges dropped entirely, when possible
- Resolving the case as favorably as possible
Depending on the facts and circumstances of the case, our attorneys at Flesch & Beck Law may be able to argue that:
- The drugs in question did not belong to the defendant, and the defendant had no knowledge of the drugs.
- Police illegally searched the defendant and/or his property when they found and confiscated the drugs.
- Any alleged confession in the case was obtained under duress.
- Police questioned the juvenile without his guardian present and/or without reading him his Miranda rights.
