6 hours ago The Juvenile Court System In California - Shouse Law Group

1. A minor in a juvenile case is not entitled to a jury trial. A juvenile court judge or commissioner makes the decision on a minor’s guilt or innocence.
2. The juvenile court process consists of four hearings. The four hearings involved in the juvenile court process are: Detention Hearing: Determines whether the juvenile can be released to his or her parents or must stay in custody during the case.
3. Minors taken into custody for a crime must be brought to court within 48 hours of their arrest to be advised of the charges against them. This first hearing in a juvenile court process is called the detention hearing.
4. There is no bail in the juvenile court process. Because there is no bail in the juvenile court process, it is extremely important to retain an experienced juvenile attorney as soon as possible to try to convince the judge to release your child at a detention hearing.
5. In certain cases, a juvenile age 14 or older charged with a serious crime can be charged as an adult in adult criminal court and face the penalties of an adult criminal conviction.
6. In certain circumstances, a juvenile age 16 or 17 can be tried as an adult for any criminal offense. In the fitness hearing, a minor is evaluated to determine whether he or she is fit to be tried in juvenile court.
7. Under certain circumstances, a juvenile age 16 or 17 who is a ward of the state can be tried as an adult for a criminal offense. In order for a minor to be tried as an adult, the criminal charge must be a felony and meet the following two elements
8. The conditions of a juvenile probation differ considerably from adult probation. Probation is considered a minor punishment for less serious crimes by the juvenile court system.
9. When a minor is found guilty of a serious crime by a juvenile court judge, the minor will not go to adult jail. If a court judge makes a decision against a minor for a serious crime, the judge can sentence the minor to time in a probation camp, a foster or group home, the California Division of Juvenile Justice (prison for minors), or juvenile hall.
10. Minors in custody for serious crimes can find themselves in custody beyond the age or 18. In certain cases, just because a minor turns 18 does not mean the sentence for a juvenile offense is over.
