Defending Youthful Offenders

In Syracuse and Central New York, people ages 16 and 17 are considered youthful offenders. Even though these offenders are minors, they still have to go through the same court system as adults who have been charged with crimes. Like adults, youthful offenders are subject to severe penalties if convicted.

If your child has been accused of a crime, you have the right to enlist an experienced attorney who knows how to handle youthful offender cases.

“I am Michael Spano. My more than 25 years of experience as a criminal lawyer means that I know the steps to take to protect your child’s future from the impact the criminal justice system can have on your child’s life.” — Michael Spano

You can contact Mr. Spano day or night and he will respond within hours.

How Will A Criminal Conviction Change A Child’s Life?

Your child has been accused of a crime. You know that a conviction will have an impact. You know there may be fines, incarceration and a criminal record.

You may have other questions about how it will impact your child’s life. Will your child get expelled from school? Will it prevent your child from joining the military, from being accepted into a good college or from getting a good job?

It certainly could, but Michael Spano will work hard to see that your child’s future is protected.
