Drugs and violence
Two topics we would rather stay away from, but sometimes you do find yourself in a situation where you are faced with these issues. This is when a lawyer can always help you.
Juvenile delinquency is essentially criminal behaviour by young people up to the age of 18. Examples include: committing violence, stealing, robbery and threatening. In slang, it is called a MOF (offence defined as a crime).
Violence can be physical, sexual, psychological or economic. Witnessing violence is also considered a form of victimisation.
When you are interrogated by the police (whether you are a suspect, witness or victim), you always have the right to prior confidential consultation with your lawyer and assistance during the interrogation.
Drug dealing is punishable by imprisonment, a fine or a combination of those penalties.
Possession of drugs is punishable by imprisonment, with a fine by the combination of both.
