Juvenile waiver hearing won

Sean William O'Neill

Case Conclusion Date:December 7, 2012

Practice Area:Criminal Defense

Outcome:Judge dismisses waiver petition

Description:State petitioned to waive a 16 year old into adult court for a very serious string of home invasion robberies with guns and masks. This "gang" targeted drug dealers for rips with the thought they wouldn't report. Well they did. The hearing was several hours long and I presented the latest in juvenile brain science to convince the judge the that client was best suited for the juvenile system and should be place in the serious juvenile offender program. Judge agreed and I save my client the adult system, a criminal conviction and likely a very hefty prison sentence.
