Juvenile on Drugs Shoots Relative by Accident

 Posted on September 02, 2012 in Criminal Defense

Drugs can cause many unnecessary tragedies. This seems to be the case in a recent case where a 16-year-old shot and critically wounded his younger relative. The shooting was reported by the Chicago Tribune. According to police, the young man was packaging drugs while under the influence of narcotics. He was carrying a gun which misfired and the shot hit the man’s fifteen year-old female relative. The drugged juvenile then left the crime scene, got rid of the gun and phoned his mother who was able to convince her son to surrender. The juvenile was arrested and taken into custody only a few hours after the incident. The unlucky teenage girl was taken to a hospital in a critical condition.

The young man may be facing many types of charges, from drug charges to felony charges to weapons charges. Whatever they may be, the penalties are likely to be severe, especially if the wounded girl does not recover from her injuries. In this case, the drug-influenced accident could ruin the lives of two young people. The girl’s fate is in the hands of medical professionals, but the young man requires legal help. An experienced criminal defense attorney can affect the outcome of any ensuing legal proceedings and help minimize the consequences of this accident.
