Juvenile Crimes in California
Types of California Juvenile Crime Charges
There are numerous charges involving juvenile crimes in California that include but are not limited to:
• Underage drinking;
• Underage possession of marijuana; or
• Other crimes that are illegal no matter the age. Juveniles are still capable of committing crimes that are illegal for adults to commit as well.
Juvenile crimes in California can be misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the crime that is committed which means the sentence range as well and could include fines up to $10,000.00 or imprisonment, or both. The circumstances around the crime the juvenile is charged for, their prior criminal record, and their age can play a role in the significance of your sentence. Whether it is their first offense or not, it is important to have an attorney who can explain the potential consequences of being charged with the crime.
Additionally, some California juvenile crimes can be charged together, which add to the severity of the sentence. An example of this includes underage drinking and possession of marijuana. There are sometimes instances where a charge can be dropped or lessened, or just one charge be kept with the other dropped, but it is important to have an attorney who knows how to navigate the criminal justice system and how to take those actions.
