Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor

Covered under the laws pertaining to the abuse of children, Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor is generally defined as helping or encouraging someone under 18 years old to break the law in some way. For example, bringing a minor along on a burglary or encouraging a minor to take drugs is against the law. 

It’s a first-degree misdemeanor that can lead to up to a year in jail, plus probation, community service and fines. If a dependent child is involved there may be court-ordered supervision by the Department of Children and Families.

There are numerous defenses to charges of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. If you face child abuse or neglect charges, call 407-349-4211 and speak with the Orlando Criminal Defense Attorneys at the Rivas Law firm so that your rights are protected.
