Juvenile Delinquency

When a child is charged with a crime, it is called juvenile delinquency in Indiana. Juvenile delinquency can involve any type of crime — including violent crimes, sex crimes, theft crimes, property crimes and drug crimes — as well as underage drinking, underage driving and other crimes that are specific to minors.

With decades of experience in criminal defense, including work as a public defender and prosecuting attorney, Barbara Williams can help you protect your child in the system and help you find the resources to help your child's future.

Child In Need Of Services

In Indiana, Child in Need of Services (CHINS) involves a child who has been neglected or abused. In these severe cases, the court steps in to make sure the child is given provisions and protection.
