Sixteen-Year-Old Boy Arrested After An Explosive Device Was Found At His School

 

The Denver Post reports that the sixteen-year-old boy who was arrested after an explosive device was found at his school will be charged as an adult with multiple crimes. A teacher at the school found an explosive device that, according to police, was similar to a pipe bomb. The school was evacuated and the bomb squad brought in. The attorney for the minor has filed a motion to move the charges to juvenile court. He believes that the case belongs in juvenile court because the boy does not have a history of legal trouble, and no one was hurt in the incident.

Has your child been charged with a crime in Colorado? Speak with an experienced Denver criminal defense attorney today to discuss your options.

Between 40,000 and 50,000 juveniles are arrested in Colorado each year, but very few of those arrests are for violent crimes. In cases where a juvenile has a history of trouble with the police, or if someone is hurt by the actions, juveniles may be charged as adults, tried in adult courts, and face adult consequences. This is a frightening prospect for a family. Many people believe that when a juvenile is tried as an adult, it will be more difficult to move on with his or her life, and be a contributing member of society than if that same child went to juvenile court.
