Experience can make a difference in juvenile crimes cases

When it comes to activities California youth engage in, some people would say kids will be kids. In other words, no big deal -- move on. Unfortunately, some youth may be accused of engaging in activities that cannot be ignored by local law enforcement officers. Those accused of juvenile crimes may face serious penalties and could benefit from strong representation working on their behalf.

Juvenile crimes can have both immediate and long-term consequences. While the main goal of juvenile court is to provide help and not punishment, it doesn't mean that sentences handed down in juvenile court won't affect your future. A seasoned criminal defense attorney can help fight for a dismissal of charges or at least request alternative sentencing in order to minimize any future issues.

Cases commonly seen in juvenile court include weapons crimes, minor in possession of drugs or alcohol, gang cases, vandalism and shoplifting. Depending on the severity of the alleged incident and the age of the accused, some juvenile cases may actually be tried in an adult court setting. Having an attorney who is experienced in both juvenile and adult criminal court proceedings can prove to be a valuable commodity.
