How juvenile defense for those age 17 differs from other minors

An interesting study was recently conducted in Texas pertaining to teenage crime. A focal point of the study was whether the age of responsibility should be raised in this state. Currently, state law mandates those age 17 charged with crimes are to be tried as adults. Juvenile defense, then, is really no longer "juvenile" in such situations, not to mention that penalties under conviction could result in severe consequences.

Teens and DUIs: When one mistake impacts the future

5 arrested on drug crimes in drug free zone

Drug free zones have been established in Texas and around the nation in efforts to protect children from exposure to the sale or use of drugs. Many locations, such as schools, pools or malls, are designated as drug free zones. If someone is arrested and convicted for drug crimes in one of these areas, the penalties are much more severe. Five people have recently been arrested for selling drugs in a drug free zone, according to the Fort Bend County Narcotics Task Force.
