Before hiring a juvenile criminal defense attorney to handle your child's case there are many critical issues that you must consider. You, as the parent, must understand there are many differences between the adult and juvenile criminal justice systems. The two most significant differences are a juvenile is not allowed to be released on bail and they are not entitled to a trial by jury. In juvenile criminal court cases, a Judge or Commissioner is the sole person to determine the guilt or innocence of your child. Aside from these and many other differences between adult and juvenile criminal cases you need to hire a knowledgeable and experienced juvenile defense lawyer.
LibertyBell law firm's team of juvenile court attorneys are intimately familiar with the inner workings of the juvenile criminal justice and will provide your child with the best defense possible with the ultimate goal of either getting charges dismissed or getting your child into a rehabilitation program instead of placement in juvenile hall, juvenile camp, the Youth Authority, or adult court.
Laws have become much tougher in prosecuting juveniles for their alleged crimes. Additionally, Judges and Commissioners are feeling the public pressure to become tougher in their handling of juvenile criminal cases which can range from serious crimes such as aggravated assault, burglary, robbery, rape and murder to other minor offenses. Some criminal laws that juveniles may feel are targeting them include simple assault, vandalism, weapons law violations, drug abuse violations, driving under the influence, liquor law violations, drunkenness, disorderly conduct, curfew violations, loitering and even running away. At an earlier time, the objective with juvenile offenders was to place them in rehabilitation or at home under their parents' supervision. Removal from the home was an option of last resort reserved for serious violent criminals.
Times have changed. Lawmakers throughout the country have been under pressure to take juvenile offenses more seriously and to punish them more harshly especially those involved in gang activity, drugs, sex or violent crimes. Crimes that were once charged as misdemeanors such as vandalism, petty theft, and shoplifting are now being charged as felonies. In California, Proposition 21 allows the district attorney to file particular juvenile criminal cases in adult court, (which can be a disaster or a blessing depending on the circumstances). In fact, the common practice is for the district attorney to file a fitness hearing as a matter of routine for certain charges. A fitness hearing is a request made to the juvenile court to have your son or daughter removed from the juvenile court and placed into adult court, where they may risk being sent to prison to do time with adult inmates.
