Robbery and the Juvenile Plea

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Serious criminal charges, like robbery, bring serious sentences with years of possible jail time. Consequently, defendants under 18 often ask that their charges be moved to Juvenile Court. The decision to transfer is often up to the judge. The request can be made up until the defendants 18th birthday. Obviously, juvenile sentences are far more lenient that adult sentences, so this is often a worthwhile tactic.

Such is the case in a recent robbery charge in Frederick County, Maryland. Kevin Concalves, an alleged gang member, is charges with the robbery of Philly's Cheesesteak Factory on Urbana Pike, and the Kerrigans Corner Deli in Point of Rocks. Goncalves was 17 at the time of the incidents so he has requested his case be heard in Juvenile Court.

If you, a family member, or someone you know is being charged with robbery or if you would like more information on criminal defense please contact the Maryland lawyers at Portner & Shure.
