Juvenile Crimes

An Orange County Defense Attorney Determined to Give Juveniles Accused of Crimes a Fighting Chance

It is gut-wrenching when you or your child gets accused of a crime. Their entire future can depend on this one pivotal moment in time. If the juvenile is convicted of a crime, it can be detrimental to their education and future employment as they will now have a criminal record. Businesses and schools might reject them without proof of proper rehabilitation.

It is sad that in the state of California, the courts would rather focus on punishment rather than rehabilitation. For that reason alone, the juvenile being charged needs a juvenile crimes defense attorney that understands the juvenile court system as it differs from the court system for adults.

The Most Common Juvenile Crimes

Although juveniles can commit any crime an adult can, there are some differences in which offenses are the most common. Marley Law is deeply experienced with the following juvenile crimes due to their commonality:

  • Underage Drinking
  • Drug Offenses
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft-related Crimes
  • Vandalism
  • Sex Crimes

Each crime can have different levels of severity based on multiple offenses, attitudes, and specific details of the crime allegedly committed. How we determine to defend your case all depends on those factors as each case is different.

The common crimes listed above are all typically charged as juvenile offenses. Only in the most extreme cases can a juvenile be tried as an adult. For heinous crimes like murder, rape, arson, robbery, and assault, the court can decide to waive the classification of being juvenile.
