Happy Friday! Who else is ready to close out another week? We can't tell you how much we are. Let's wrap this week up and get started on making our way to the couch or enjoy the pool before summer officially ends.
Tip of the Week – Before You Plea
Talk to your client about the impacts of an adjudication. While not as public as adult criminal convictions, juvenile adjudications may impact the following: immigration status, educational placement, housing conditions, eligibility to play sports, placement on a sex offender registry (in N.C. or other states) and others. Always consider the long-term consequences of what may first appear to be a short-term decision.
