As parents and concerned loved ones, we may do all we can to provide nurturing and guidance to the children and teenagers in our lives. Unfortunately, immaturity and failing to understand the consequences of their actions can cause young people to make choices that put them at odds with the law. Minors can face criminal charges for the same types of crimes as adults, as well as for additional behaviors that are considered criminal on account of their age. At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our experienced Will County criminal law attorneys understand the serious impacts that juvenile criminal charges can have on the lives of young people, and the way these charges can follow them into adult life. Illinois law is tough on juvenile crimes, and you need a strong, effective legal defense when dealing with these types of charges.
At Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C., our experienced Will County criminal law attorneys provide professional, compassionate legal service to juveniles charged with misdemeanor and felony charges, including the following types of crimes:
In the state of Illinois, the Juvenile Court Act (705 ILCS 405/1-18) governs the procedures for dealing with minors accused of criminal activities, and the court understands the importance of mitigating factors such as age and immaturity in dealing with juvenile offenders. As your attorneys, we work with established frameworks to provide a strong legal defense. Our top priority is to protect your child against a criminal record that could jeopardize their future, as well as to protect them against the damaging effects that can result from doing time in a juvenile criminal facility.
If you are the parent or loved one of a young person charged with a crime, it is important to know that you are not alone. Roughly 1,500 young people each year are convicted of juvenile offenses, according to statistics from the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ). Penalties for juvenile offenders vary depending on the crime they are accused of. If your son or daughter faces being convicted of a crime, our criminal law attorneys may be able to negotiate on their behalf for reduced charges and sentencing recommendations, such as probation or admittance into a pretrial intervention program, thereby avoiding detention at a juvenile facility and allowing them to remain in your care.
If you have a loved one facing criminal charges, call Sabuco, Beck, Hansen & Massino, P.C. today. Our experienced Will County criminal law attorneys understand the serious impacts criminal charges can have on a young person’s life and their chances for success. We provide a strong legal defense for those charged with committing juvenile offense, while ensuring their rights are protected. With offices throughout Will County and the surrounding area, we are available to help you; call or contact us online today for an initial consultation.

Great attorney sure did a fantastic job on my divorce HIGHLY RECOMMEND
As it was a long road, the outcome was what it should have been. 50/50 should be the starting point of a divorce when kids are involved, not something parents should have to fight for. Thanks Sandy & Roy for everything!
There is not enough space to accurately give justice to the gratefulness I have for Mr. Sabuco and his staff. So let me just say – I am grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between.
