Trinidad & Pueblo Juvenile Defense Lawyers

Criminal charges can be scary for anyone. When the focus of these charges is a child or teenager, however, the situation can be far more stressful – not only for the minor who has been charged but also for his or her family. That’s because misdemeanor and felony charges filed against juveniles can come with dire consequences, the most serious of which can threaten to ruin the rest of a child’s life.

At Gradisar, Trechter, Ripperger & Roth, our Trinidad & Pueblo attorneys are committed to helping juveniles fight criminal charges and bring their cases to the best possible resolutions.

We know that mistakes can happen, that people can be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that misinterpretations (or even oversights) can result in minors being accused of serious offenses. We also know how to stand up to criminal allegations, challenge prosecutors’ evidence and aggressively advocate for our juvenile clients.

If you or your child has been charged with any type of juvenile offense, let us help you build the strongest defense. Just call (719) 556- 8844 or email our firm to get your defense started.

How Our Attorneys Build Strong Juvenile Defense Cases

The best defense against juvenile criminal charges will depend on a number of different factors, only some of which may include:

  • The nature of the charge(s) filed – Whether the charge(s) involve an alleged misdemeanor offense and/or an alleged felony offense can impact the options for the defense team. Other factors that can affect the defense case include whether the alleged offense injured anyone and/or resulted in substantial property damage.
  • The evidence in the case – Whether there are witnesses, physical evidence and/or circumstantial evidence in the case will also affect the best options for refuting or discrediting the prosecutor’s evidence.
  • The criminal history of the accused minor – If a minor has prior criminal convictions on his or her record, the charges can be elevated, with harsher penalties on the line. In contrast, however, if the accused juvenile has a clean record, it may be possible to push for reduced charges (as well as lesser penalties and/or alternative sentencing).

The Trinidad & Pueblo attorneys at Gradisar, Trechter, Ripperger & Roth always customize their defense representation to fit the specifics of a case, as well as the needs and goals of a client. Generally, however, the following are just some of the things our lawyers will do to help any minor craft and present an effective defense case:

  • Closely examine the police report
  • Analyze all of the prosecution’s evidence
  • Gather evidence to back the defense case
  • Get expert witnesses (when helpful and appropriate) to back the defense case
  • Fight to resolve the case as favorably as possible.

While our lawyers have extensive experience handling juvenile cases that involve misdemeanor and felony charges (including cases in which juveniles may be facing the possibility of being charged as adults), we are also skilled at handling juvenile criminal appeals and probation violation cases.
