We Can Help You Protect Your Child’s Future in Criminal Cases

The criminal defense practice at Stebelton Snider can help families whose children face charges ranging from misdemeanor theft or drug charges to serious felonies tried in adult court. If you need the advice of an experienced juvenile defense lawyer, contact our office in Lancaster.

Our attorneys advise parents and juvenile defendants about the best ways to resolve problems related to such criminal charges as:

  • Assault and weapons offenses
  • Sex crimes ranging from nude photos on cell phones to indecent conduct
  • Property crimes such as auto theft, shoplifting, or vandalism
  • Crimes at school
  • Underage DUI
  • Minor in possession of alcohol
  • Drug crimes involving marijuana, methamphetamine, or prescription painkillers
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

At Stebelton Snider, we understand the range of programs available to help young people turn themselves around, and we can work to convince the court that these can work better than felony prosecution as an adult. On less serious offenses, we can work toward a balance between punishment and treatment or counseling that can spare a young offender the stigma and hindrance of a lifelong criminal record.
