Juvenile Law


Often even the best children make mistakes and poor decisions. Sometimes children are falsely accused of committing a crime, just like adults. If your child has a juvenile law problem, Johnson County attorney David E. Houston can advise you of the differences in adult and juvenile law and will fight for your child's rights.

If your child has been detained, he has a right to a hearing regarding the necessity for his detention within three business days of his detention to determine if he should be released to his parent or guardian's care. Attorney David E. Houston has many years of experience handling juvenile detention hearings, and can help insure that your child's rights are respected.

A juvenile, like an adult, has certain constitutional rights, including the right to a jury trial. A juvenile also has additional statutory protections not given to adults. Attorney David E. Houston is familiar with these differences in rights, and will fight for your child to protect those rights.
