Juvenile Defense

How important is a juvenile case, really? 

Larry McCotter has extensive experience in the defense of juvenile delinquency cases.  Since 1997, he has zealously defended hundreds of juvenile clients charged with a wide range of crimes – from simple misdemeanors such as Theft, Assault, and Possession of Marijuana, to felonies like Possession of Dangerous Drugs at school, Possession of Controlled Substances, Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Murder.  He has successfully tried and prevailed in numerous of these cases and has also been able to secure many dismissals.  

The bottom line: No juvenile delinquency case is a minor one, period. The prosecution of juveniles (ages 10 through 16) has increased dramatically over the past two decades.  In many jurisdictions, juvenile cases are being prosecuted now that, years ago, would never have been referred to court.  

Larry has had great success working with the prosecutors of the Montgomery County Attorney's Office to assure that, when possible, cases are handled informally so that the filing of a Juvenile Petition and the danger of a juvenile adjudication is avoided. 

Cases that Larry has defended, or is currently defending, include Indecency with a Child, Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, Murder, Theft, Burglary of a Motor Vehicle, Drug Possession cases, Robbery, Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, Explosive Devices in School, Evading Arrest, Graffiti, Criminal Mischief and probation violations. 

Larry can also get your child's juvenile records sealed, in many cases.

Juvenile cases can result in extreme & long-lasting consequences for your child!
