Youthful Offender Status

We have had youthful offender status granted for our clients in a number of cases recently including drug possession, theft of property and robbery. Previously we have helped clients get youthful offender status while facing identity theft charges, robbery and discharging a gun into an occupied building. There is no magic formula that determines who will receive Youthful Offender status although actively preparing properly for a YO hearing does mean a higher probability of success. We prepare aggressively for all YO hearings.
