What Rights Do Juveniles Have?

Children’s constitutional rights are slightly modified from those afforded to adults. As a parent, it is important to understand that:

  • Juveniles are protected from unreasonable search and seizure by the 4th Amendment. However, probable cause required for search of personal property does not necessarily apply on school property. In other words, schools may be within their rights to search children, their lockers and backpacks to ensure compliance with school policies without reasonable suspicion that any individual child is in violation of those policies.
  • If arrested, children are protected under the 5th Amendment from self-incrimination. Miranda rights must be explained to children, rather than just read to them, upon arrest.
  • Juvenile laws stipulate at what ages and under what circumstances children’s statements or confessions are admissible as evidence. To effectively exercise their 5th Amendment rights, your child needs a juvenile defense attorney familiar with these laws.

When you need an attorney for your child, hire someone experienced with the juvenile justice system to ensure the best results.
