Juvenile cases are handled differently than cases invovling an adult. Because it is a 3rd degree felony, TJJD (juvenile prison) is an option. The court will look at the juvenile's background to determine if he will send the child to TJJD. Whether your child gets TJJD or a probation will most likely be determined by the judge in the court that the case is in and the background of the juvenile. Hiring an attorney that will be able to discuss the detailed circumstances surrounding the case would be the best option.
