Riverside Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Defending Minors Who Are Facing Criminal Charges
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.

How are Juvenile Cases Handled 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.
Gang-Related Charges For Minors in CA
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.
