Legal Aid Alberta working to better serve Lethbridge

Legal Aid Alberta wants to extend its services to better serve areas like Lethbridge. They will be launching a virtual service at noon on February 24. Youth criminal law expert, Karen McGowan, says there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to teenagers getting in trouble with the law. She says more parents need to be equipped with the proper resources to make informed decisions on the best ways of helping their children.

“If you have a young person who has been arrested by the police, they have an upcoming court date — parents can call us anytime and we can walk them through every single step of the criminal justice system,” says McGowan.

Registration for the virtual event is now open at legalaid.ab.ca
