Naperville Juvenile Theft Lawyer

Wheaton Juvenile Theft Lawyer

Attorney for Minors Charged with Shoplifting in DuPage County, Will County, and Kane County

When a juvenile is charged with a theft crime, it can be a frightening experience. There is uncertainty about the process, what their legal rights are, and the punishment they face. If the defendant is 17 years of age or younger, they are tried for theft in juvenile court. This process is different from adult court, and it is important to work with an experienced juvenile defense lawyer, so your rights and interests are protected.

Attorney Patricia Magaña of the Law Office of Patricia Magaña, LLC has successfully represented minors charged with theft in DuPage County and throughout Chicago for over 15 years. Attorney Magaña is honest, compassionate, diligent, and well-organized. She handles each case personally, and she works closely with clients to develop the most effective legal defense to mitigate the circumstances as much as possible. She also speaks Spanish and has helped numerous Spanish speaking juveniles who are facing theft charges.

Juvenile Theft in Illinois

Theft is one of the most common offenses tried in Illinois juvenile courts. There are many different types of theft that juveniles may be charged with, including shoplifting, retail theft, petty theft, and petty larceny. The exact charge depends largely on the value of the items stolen and other specific circumstances of the case.

Juvenile courts are similar to adult courts, but there are some important differences. In juvenile court, the case is heard by a judge rather than a jury of your peers. In addition, the emphasis in juvenile court is on rehabilitation, and punishments are less severe than adult court. Consequences for juvenile theft may include fines, probation, community service, restitution to victims, and in the most extreme cases, juvenile detention.
