Los Angeles Juvenile Crimes Lawyer

Defending Juvenile Charges

When your child faces juvenile charges, the uncertainty and concern can be overwhelming. Regardless of the nature of the charge, securing a skilled criminal defense lawyer is crucial to offer your child the best chance of avoiding the long-term impact of a juvenile record.

Juvenile court operates distinctly from adult criminal court, necessitating an attorney with expertise in both areas to ensure the strongest defense for your child. At RLPC, we are dedicated to understanding and navigating the unique aspects of juvenile law and juvenile courts. Reach out to our law firm today to discuss your child’s case and the path forward.

Understanding the Categories of Juvenile Charges

Juvenile charges generally fall into two categories:

  1. Status Offenses: These are offenses considered criminal solely because the individual is a minor, such as truancy and curfew violations.
  2. Juvenile Delinquency Crimes: These are offenses criminal for all citizens, including drug possession, violent crimes like assault and battery, and theft and property crimes.

In some cases, the prosecution may attempt to have your child tried as an adult, potentially leading to more severe consequences.

Key Aspects of Juvenile Court Proceedings

  • Judge-Only Trials: Juvenile cases are adjudicated solely by a judge, without a jury.
  • Detention Hearings: Instead of bail, a detention hearing is held to decide if the juvenile can be released pending further court proceedings.
  • Prosecutor’s Role: The prosecutor determines whether to try the charges as a felony or misdemeanor.

At RLPC, we provide aggressive defense and comprehensive guidance through the juvenile justice system. Our experienced juvenile defense attorneys are committed to protecting your child’s rights and future. Understanding the gravity of juvenile charges and their potential to escalate, we strive to offer the best possible representation, whether it’s a drug charge, violent crime, or status offense.
