Has your son or daughter been charged with a Juvenile Crime?
Act fast to protect your child’s rights.
If your child has been charged with a Juvenile crime, it is essential that you hire a defense attorney experienced in juvenile defense as soon as possible.
As a mother, Utah Attorney, Ms. Tangaro understands the frustration and confusion that a family may encounter when a son or daughter is accused of a crime. She also understands that working with parents and juveniles in the justice system requires a more sensitive approach.
You need a lawyer to protect your child’s rights and one that will aggressively fight for them.
In Utah, our juvenile system is civil in nature and we have adjudications rather than convictions. However, a juvenile can still risk being brought into the adult system on certain allegations and a juvenile can spend time in juvenile detention.
Fighting For Juvenile Rights
In 2010, Ms. Tangaro spoke in front of the Utah State Legislature about the harsh penalties associated with Utah’s “Not-a-Drop” law. She was successful in getting the Legislature to change the law from a driver’s license suspension until age 21 to suspensions ranging from 6 months to a year depending on the age of the driver and the facts of the case.
