Young people make mistakes. It's just part of growing up. However,
when those mistakes cross into the realm of criminal activity, they can
result in serious and lasting negative consequences. In some instances,
the liability for a minor's crimes can fall onto the parents. In other
cases, parents lose their parental rights and their children become wards
of the state.
Blumenthal Law Offices our Riverside juvenile crime lawyers know how to defend young people accused
of any criminal activity, from truancy to homicide.

What are the Penalties for Juvenile Crimes in California?
The California juvenile justice system seeks to rehabilitate rather than
punish youthful offenders. The goal is to prevent juveniles from becoming
adult offenders. However, if a crime is particularly serious or violent,
the district attorney may attempt to move the case to adult court—even
if the minor is as young as 14 years old. Our attorneys will fight to
keep such cases in the juvenile court system.
Charges involving gang-related activity are particularly serious for a
juvenile because they carry the same maximum sentences as they do for
adult crimes. In addition, many juvenile adjudications (convictions) qualify
as strikes under
California's Three Strikes and You're Out sentencing program
No matter what crime your child has been accused of committing, you can
depend on our legal team to build a solid defense strategy aimed at minimizing
