Common Types of Juvenile Crimes Associated with Incorrigibility

Talk to a juvenile criminal defense lawyer if you have been charged with a crime in Miami associated with incorrigibility. Although some of the activities might not seem serious, there are penalties that could have a significant impact on your life.

To be considered incorrigible, it must be demonstrated that your actions are dangerous or a threat to others. It is also based on habitually failing to comply with authority, which can include parents, teachers, guardians and others.

The following are some examples of crimes or activities that might be associated with incorrigibility: 

  • theft;
  • arson;
  • vandalism;
  • running away;
  • breaking curfew;
  • underage drinking;
  • weapons possession;
  • skipping school (truancy);
  • sale/possession of drugs;
  • robbery; and
  • burglary.

Penalties could range from community service to being sentenced to a detention center. There is also the chance that some of these crimes could result in your case being moved to adult court depending on the specific case. If you are charged with an adult crime, it could then lead to time spent in prison.

There is a lot at stake when an adolescent is charged with incorrigibility. This is why it’s vital you secure legal representation from a lawyer familiar with juvenile cases and applicable Florida laws.
