Criminal Defense in Florida Juvenile Theft Cases
Property crimes like theft, burglary, car theft and shoplifting are among the most common crimes that juveniles are charged with committing. If the young person actually did commit the crime - and that's certainly not always the case - it's often because they were pushed into it by their peers.
If your child has been charged with theft, shoplifting, or a property crime in Orange, Seminole, Brevard, Osceola, Lake, Polk, Volusia, or Hillsborough County in Central Florida, they need a strong defense. DON'T PLEAD GUILTY before you talk with a lawyer .
Many young people in the Florida juvenile justice system enter into plea bargains that may have serious consequences later in life, preventing them from serving in the military, from getting hired for some jobs, or for getting financial aid for school.
You need to take any juvenile criminal charge seriously, because the consequences can be serious. Get your child the help he or she needs. Contact The Umansky Law Firm online or call (407) 228-3838.

At The Umansky Law Firm, our Orlando criminal defense lawyers have decades of experience defending young people in the Florida juvenile justice system. We're here to protect your child's rights and to help them receive the help they need to stay out of court in the future.
The juvenile justice system is supposed to be concerned with rehabilitation of young people facing criminal charges. This means that a juvenile judge can "sentence" a juvenile offender to counseling or a therapy program, to an after-school program or to a work program if they are found guilty of theft, burglary or stealing a car. In some cases, the criminal defense attorney can persuade the state to send your child to a diversion intervention program, where upon completion, charges will be dropped.
At The Umansky Law Firm, we have been handling juvenile theft cases for years. Founding attorney Bill Umansky is actively involved in Florida's juvenile court system and serves as a judge in the Orange County Teen Court program. We know the alternative sentencing options and programs in central Florida and work to have your child admitted to a program, rather than serving time in a juvenile detention facility.
