Burbank Juvenile Crimes Lawyer

Defense Attorneys for Burbank, California

A juvenile crime is any criminal act done by a person who is below the age of 18. Because of the fact that a minor is the perpetrator of such a crime, juveniles and their parents often think that a juvenile crime will not be taken very seriously by prosecutors or courts. This is an erroneous belief which may lead to tragic consequences. In California, juvenile crimes are taken very seriously by law enforcement and thoroughly prosecuted in the appropriate court system. Anyone charged with a juvenile crime needs an experienced and skilled criminal defense lawyer to aggressively represent him throughout the legal process involved.

Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile crimes are composed of two separate categories: status crimes and juvenile delinquency offenses. Status offenses are considered offenses because of the age factor of a juvenile. Examples of these kinds of offenses are underage drinking, curfew violations, and truancy. Actions that are illegal no matter what age an individual is are classified as juvenile delinquency offenses. Examples of these kinds of offenses are violent crimes, drug crimes,sex crimes, weapons charges, assault, battery,gang crimes, robbery, and murder.

Depending on the nature of the crime and the surrounding circumstances, a juvenile offense may be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony. The circumstances of the crime will dictate the harshness of the punishment. Felonies carry more severe penalties. Punishment for a felony may be imprisonment in a state juvenile institution. Other penalties may be probation, community service, house arrest, and counseling/treatment.
