As the title suggests, in "What Every Teenager (and Every Parent) Should Know about New York Criminal Law" criminal defense attorney Robert Tucker uses plain language to explain the principles of New York criminal law to teenagers and parents. He focuses on concepts and situations that commonly apply to teenagers, and he draws upon his experience to illustrate scenarios that are particularly dangerous for teenagers and young adults. A criminal conviction can devastate a young life, and this book provides the necessary information to avoid the kind of poor choices that routinely drag young people into the criminal justice system. As the reader will discover, criminal law is sometimes confusing and counter-intuitive. Through this book, Robert Tucker removes the confusion and prepares young people to make informed choices. While the book is specific to New York criminal law, most of the basic concepts apply nation wide, and it will be a very useful resource to any family with teenagers.
