Juvenile Offenses

California’s juvenile crime laws are controversial because, for serious offenses, juveniles under the age of 18 can be tried as adults and judges have the option to sentence juveniles under the age of 18 to life in prison without possibility of parole.

Fortunately, most juveniles will be tried in Juvenile Delinquency Courts rather than as adults. The most common offenses juveniles are charged with include misdemeanor theft, drug possession, underage drinking, minor in possession of alcohol, DUI, battery and assault crimes, sex crimes, and property damage or vandalism. Judges in juvenile courts have a great deal of discretion when sentencing, which is why it is so important to be represented by someone with years of experience and knowledge to guide, support, and help you make the correct impression.
