Fees and Costs of Arizona’s Juvenile Justice System

“Not once does the judge or probation officer explain how expensive it’s going to be if you plead guilty without an attorney… The probation officer that said, ‘it’s really expensive to have a lawyer,’ neglected to say ‘it’s really expensive to have a probation officer.'”

– NJDC’s Legal Director, Tim Curry on children waiving the right to a lawyer because of the fees and costs.

34 states charge youth and families for a “free” lawyer- proud to partner with the Laura and John Arnold Foundation to end juvenile fees.
