Hi. My son is 14 years old and was arrested after he and a friend broke into a home at night to steal some liquor. Although he was not arrested at the house there's some pretty strong evidence that he did it. His lawyer is fighting the charge instead of taking a plea agreement and he said that even if a juvenile is found guilt in Massachusetts the court can decide not to punish him other than continuing the case. Is that correct or should the attorney be looking into taking the plea agreement. Thanks.
