Temecula Juvenile Crimes Attorney

Crimes Involving Minors

Has your child been arrested for a criminal act in Temecula, Murrieta, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Menifee, Hemet, Corona or Riverside? Have they been taken to a juvenile detention facility? As a parent, this time can be extremely nerve-racking and difficult to understand. A criminal record can follow a minor for the rest of their lives and negatively impact their futures. Parents want to ensure their child's lives are prosperous and that they become productive members that can positively contribute to society.

If your child has been accused of a crime, it is important to hire a professional and understanding criminal defense lawyer. California has a juvenile justice system designed to treat and rehabilitate juvenile offenders and release them back into the community.

Juvenile courts handle all types of crimes committed by minors and most sentencing results in probation and release to their parents. However, depending on the case, the sentence can involve the detention and incarceration of the minor for a significant period of time.

When a juvenile or minor is arrested, it is up to the discretion of the arresting officers to either release them to their parents to take them to juvenile hall. Depending on the crime that was committed, the probation department can choose to either rehabilitate them in their facility or they could on occasion refer the crime to an adult court. If the crime is referred to an adult court, your child could be tried as an adult, often resulting in harsher penalties and longer sentencing.
