Very often your child may have been arrested by making a bad choice. Labeling theory states that once young people have been labeled as criminal they are more likely to offend. (Eadie & Morley: 2003 p. 552) The idea is that once labeled as deviant a young person may accept that role. As a juvenile defense lawyer Guy Seligman understands this and how important it is to put first time juvenile offenders back on the right path.
