Juvenile CrimesNow Fighting On Your Side
Juvenile Offenses in CA
Knowledgeable Modesto Criminal Defense Lawyer
Defending juvenile delinquency cases require specialized and thorough understanding of the law. Children and teenagers are unique because they can be charged with criminal conduct but lack the maturity to be treated as adults in most cases. The Law Offices of Mark Girdner can work hard to make sure your minor child's rights are protected and defended.
Charges & Penalties
Juvenile delinquency proceedings, sometimes referred to as Section 602 proceedings, are part of the civil law system. Similar to crimes committed by adults, they can lead to lasting damage to your child even though charges will not appear on their adult criminal record.
There are a variety of common juvenile delinquent charges, including:
- Curfew violations
- Parole violations
- Drug possession
- Gang activity
- Vandalism/destruction of property
- Homicide, murder, and manslaughter
- Assault and battery
- Theft crimes
- Statutory rape and molestation
- Weapons violations
- Alcohol-related crimes such as underage DUI and using a fake ID
