Juvenile Crimes in Solano County
Consult with a Criminal Defense Attorney in Fairfield, California
When a minor is detained by law enforcement or is facing criminal charges, he or she will need a criminal defense attorney experienced in defending juvenile crime charges in particular. The juvenile court system functions differently than the state court system and an attorney will need to know how to provide effective representation in these particular cases.
Understanding the Scope of Juvenile Crimes
Under California law, a minor is a person under 18 years old. When a minor commits a criminal offense, he or she will face punishment in the juvenile court system. In some cases where a minor is older and has committed a very serious offense (such as murder or a violent sex crime) it is possible that he or she will be tried as an adult. At Maas Law Offices, our attorneys represent clients in all types of juvenile offenses, including:
Generally speaking the juvenile justice system in California is geared toward rehabilitation rather than punishment. But if a minor does not have the appropriate legal representation by a skilled lawyer, it is possible that he or she will be treated unfairly, tried as an adult or punished for a crime that he or she did not actually commit.
