As an experienced juvenile defense lawyer serving many communities in central and southern Indiana, Andy Roesener's familiarity with local prosecution practices, diversion programs and treatment resources represents an important strength of his practice. These resources vary a great deal from one Indiana county to another, and knowing what's out there for your son or daughter can help keep the focus on rehabilitation and the chance to get back on track toward success in school and preparation for a career.
Franklin juvenile crime lawyer Andy Roesener works with young people and their parents on finding the best solution to the problems presented by such offenses as:
- Alcohol-related offenses, such as minor in possession or open container violations
- Underage drunk driving with a blood alcohol concentration on either side of the .08 percent OWI threshold
- Drug crimes, such as possession of marijuana or prescription painkillers
- Weapons offenses, including possession of knives or guns at school
- Property crimes, including trespassing, vandalism, shoplifting or car theft
- Status offenses, such as truancy or running away from home
- Domestic assault
- Sex crimes
Especially for alcohol offenses, our approach to juvenile defense can also apply effectively to criminal defense on behalf of college and university students under 21 at such institutions as Indiana University, Butler University, Franklin College, the University of Indianapolis and IUPUI. Our focus is on finding the solution that not only minimizes a student's exposure to punishment on the current charge, but also accomplishes the most in protecting future academic and professional prospects.
We also represent juveniles charged with major felonies of the kind that could result in waiver to adult court, such as homicide, armed robbery, sexual assault, or any serious offense committed with a gun. While our first objective will be to keep the case in the juvenile system whenever possible, our trial experience can expand the options for the defense if it appears that taking the case to a jury will be in our client's best interests.
