Juvenile Defense

 

If a person under the age of 16 years old is charged with a crime in the State of South Carolina, and charged as a juvenile, unlike adults, juveniles are not “arrested,” and there is no “bond.” Juveniles are, however, taken into “custody“ and, in some cases, released to a parent or guardian.  In other cases, if a child has been detained, he or she will remain at a detention facility until a Family Court judge orders their release or they are sentenced.  We at the Law Office of Kelly A. Seabrook, L.L.C. will work diligently to ensure that your child receives a fair trial and the necessary resources to ensure the best possible outcome.
