  • Drug offenses, including possessing or selling marijuana or prescription drugs

  • Underage drinking or minor in possession of alcohol

Fight For The Best Interest Of Your Child

While certain offenses qualify a minor child to be tried as an adult in Georgia, in many cases your child's case will end up in the juvenile court system, where judges have the opportunity to use a great deal more discretion than in superior or state court. The judge can make decisions based on what is in the best interests of the child. For example, instead of being sentenced to jail time, the judge may order counseling, mediation or a treatment program.

A solid case must be built to persuade the judge in order to utilize these resources. The first step is a thorough investigation which will ensure that the charges are appropriate. Mitch Durham will guide you and your child through the process, outlining the various options and outcomes you have.

Following the resolution of the case, you may be able to have the record sealed or expunged. If your child's case is expunged or the record is sealed, the offenses would not appear on any future background checks.
