Florida teen accused of juvenile crimes after alleged robbery

When individuals are at a young age, they are expected to make mistakes. Unfortunately, some young people may make more significant mistakes than others and find themselves facing criminal charges. Though some parties may think that facing charges as a minor is not a big deal, accusations and convictions for juvenile crimes can still have lasting impacts.

It was recently reported that a 17-year-old boy was taken into custody in Florida after alleged involvement in a robbery. Reports stated that the teen went into a convenience store around midnight, held the clerk at gunpoint and demanded money. The teenager then shot a video monitor, which reportedly connected to the store's surveillance system. He then allegedly took the clerk's phone and the store phone before leaving.

Authorities were alerted to the alleged event, and an officer working in a burglary "hot spot" noticed a vehicle without any lights on. The officer apparently approached the vehicle and determined that the passenger fit the description of the robbery suspect. As a result, the teenager was taken into custody on allegations of armed robbery with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a minor, grand theft over $300 and multiple other charges.

Accusations of juvenile crimes are serious matters that need attention. The parents of the young man charged in this alleged event will certainly want to ensure that they take the proper steps when addressing his case. Information on Florida criminal proceedings relating to his type of situation may help them better understand their defense options.
