2 Florida teens facing juvenile charges for "hit list"

It is not unusual for young people to make poor decisions. When those decisions involve making threats of harm against others, they could quickly find themselves facing serious criminal accusations, even as minors. Juvenile charges can have significant repercussions for young people, and meaningful defenses are typically needed.

The parents of two girls in Florida are undoubtedly trying to find the best options for handling their cases after the teens were taken into custody. Reports stated that the girls, both 14 years old, came under the suspicion of a teacher after they became frantic in a classroom after losing a folder. The teacher located the folder and, after looking inside, saw notes about guns, which prompted the teacher to alert the school's resource officer.

In addition to mentioning guns, the notes in the folder also allegedly indicated that the girls had made plans to kill nine people. One parent stated that the folder essentially contained a hit list of other students. As a result, the girls are now facing nine counts of conspiracy to commit murder and three counts of conspiracy to commit kidnapping. They were both taken to a juvenile justice facility.

While these teenagers may have thought their actions would not have consequences or that they were not acting seriously, they now face a very serious ordeal. Their parents will certainly want to explore the legal defense options available for juvenile charges and gain information on what this type of case may entail. Obtaining assistance from local Florida legal resources may provide a valuable touchstone for them throughout the cases.
