Will I be treated as an adult?
Juvenile offenders are people under the age of 18 who commit an act that is against the law. California's juvenile criminal process is unique because of its focus on rehabilitation. Crimes of theft, violence, or narcotics can result in a trial with the superior court. Some felony offenses, such as rape or murder, can result in a trial as an adult.
Minor offenders who have committed less serious offenses may not be charged at all or may only be sentenced to probation. The juvenile court judge will hear the case and sentence the individual. During each phase of your case, our defense lawyers keep you informed and can help you fight for the best outcome possible.
