Are Parents Responsible for Their Child’s Crimes?
Imagine that your child has committed a crime in Texas. Under Texas law, a juvenile is a minor who is at least 10 years old but not yet 17 at the time of committing the alleged offense. In addition to your child facing juvenile charges, you – as the parent – might also be responsible for your child’s crimes.
