Dear Customer ,

This is attorney Bill offering assistance to you during this difficult time and criminal prosecution.

There is no waiver to a criminal charge based upon age.

Because the burden of proof is beyond a reasonable doubt if the prosecution is without sufficient evidence the trial won't proceed.

If the charges were brought maliciously or upon filing false criminal accusations you will be able to sue that person in civil court for malicious prosecution.

While your age is not something taken into consideration upon filing charges it can be later taken into consideration when it comes to a finding of guilt and sentencing, should that be the case as unlikely as you suggest it to be.

You should keep the court appearance tomorrow as failure to appear would result in the issue of a warrant for your arrest.

If you have a copy of the citation I can review this as an extra service, just let me know ?

We are here to help.

In return remember to rate positively.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

So I hope you rate FIVE STARS today.
