Juvenile and Minors Criminal Court Los Angeles

justice If a minor or a juvenile (under the age of 18) is arrested or accused of a crime, the case is prosecuted in juvenile court in Los Angeles county system. We handle Juvenile matter in all courts including Los Angeles, Pasadena, Van Nuys, El Monte Glendale and Beverly Hills. To custody time or harsh punishment by the court, it is important that an experienced juvenile criminal defense attorney represents the minor. Some juvenile matters such as shoplifting, assault and battery are similar to adult offenses, whereas crimes such as breaking curfew is unique to juveniles.

It is important to understand that juvenile courts and rules that govern the juvenile process generally focus on rehabilitating the child and probation rather than incarcerating the minor. However, in more serious criminal cases or arrests such as rape and murder, a juvenile faces substantial custody time and the minor may be tried as an adult. In such cases. the matter could be transferred to the adult court. The decision to do so is based on the seriousness of the offense, the minor;s criminal sophistication, the child's previous record, any previous attempts to rehabilitate the minor, and the court's belief that rehabilitation will be unsuccessful.

Miranda rights, right to an attorney during questioning, right to know the charges, right against self incrimination, and right to confront and cross examine a witness all apply to juveniles as well as adults. A juvenile does not have the right to a jury trial in juvenile court. A juvenile is required to appear with a parent or guardian when he appears in court.

Once a petition has been filed in Juvenile court, an affidavit may be presented to delinquency court requesting that a child be taken into custody.

A detention hearing is then held generally within 24 hours after being taken into custody.

The attorney for the government and defense counsel may attend the detention hearing. At the hearing the child must be informed of the charges and facts may be shown as to appropriateness of sanction against the child’s parent or legal guardian

In juvenile matters, if the child admits the allegations in the petition, there won’t be adjudication. But prior to adjudication hearing, a plan of proposed treatment may be submitted on behalf of the child in lieu of a plea which will set forth the terms and conditions of such plan.

An experienced Juvenile criminal defense attorney may be able to arrange a treatment plan for the minor so that any custody time is avoided.
