JUVENILE CRIMINAL DEFENSE
THE CALIFORNIA JUVENILE COURT PROCESS
Why is it important to find an experienced juvenile criminal defense attorney? In the state of California, children under the age of 18 are not processed in the same court as adults, except in certain circumstances. Many times, a minor is issued a citation for their offense requiring them to appear in court at a later date. If the offense is more severe, then they are arrested and taken to a juvenile detention center. This way minors are separated from adults while awaiting their sentencing.
Juveniles are also treated differently when it comes to trials and sentencing. Many California laws reduce sentencing for minors regarding certain crimes. There are some circumstance, however, where a minor could be tried and sentenced as an adult, such as in cases of murder (Pen. Code § 190.5) or many aggravated or violent crimes.
