Glendale Juvenile Crime Attorney
Charged with a Juvenile Crime?
A juvenile crime may be any crime committed by a minor. Because the defendant is a legal minor under the age of 18, it's commonly thought that a juvenile who has committed a crime will get off easily. However, that is far from the reality. In California, juvenile crimes are taken quite seriously by law enforcement and criminal justice systems. Furthermore, if a juvenile is close to 18 and has committed a felony, he or she may be charged and treated like an adult in a similar situation.
