The charges are all felonies and extremely serious crimes. No only are these Fruit Cove Juveniles looking at possible incarceration, but they charges could haunt them in the future. With a future ahead of them, it is important that they make the right decisions in their cases. They should certainly have separate representation due to the potential conflict of interest with these St. Johns County juvenile defendants. When co-defendants are arrested, they often turn against one another. It is important that each Clay County criminal defendant has his own Clay County Criminal Lawyer, so an attorney is looking out for the individual’s best interest.
