Murrieta Juvenile Crime Attorney

Crimes Involving Minors

Crimes involving minors can be tough. Parents want nothing but the best for their children and to stand by and watch them be prosecuted in a court of law can be hard. Has your child recently been arrested for a crime? It is important to know that the juvenile justice system in the state of California has a goal to simply treat and rehabilitate juvenile offenders so that they can become productive and positive members of society.

If your child was arrested for a crime, the arresting officer has the discretion to either release the child to the parent's custody or, depending on the crime that was committed, take them directly to juvenile hall. The juvenile probation department will review the case and can choose to petition the District Attorney's Office to file "charges" in the juvenile court system, which is similar to filing charges in an adult court.

On occasion, the prosecutor's office will try to get a minor who has committed a serious crime "remanded" to an adult court to be tried as an adult. Often times, the crime that was committed was not serious enough for this sort of trial, but rather the prosecuting attorneys are simply trying to "make an example" out of the juvenile.
