The state of North Carolina is one of two in the U.S. that has a juvenile jurisdiction cutoff set at age 15. This means that 16- to 18-year-old minors will be charged as adults for any crimes that they commit. If you or your child has been charged with a crime as a juvenile, then it is important for you to retain skillful representation in your case in order to fight against the allegations made against you.
