Sentencing/Disposition

Speak with Our Pasadena Juvenile Defense Attorney Today

Even if faced with a juvenile crime or juvenile criminal court charge, there are many different options in juvenile court which can alleviate the penalties normally handed down from a conviction in adult court. It is therefore important that you hire a criminal defense attorney familiar with the proceedings and options available in juvenile court in order to minimize those penalties. At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, we always consider all legal avenues as our clients confront their charges and ensure that they are aware of their options during this difficult.

It can be possible to seek a favorable outcome to your case. Contact our Pasadena juvenile defense lawyer today for a free consultation.

Sentencing Options

Juvenile criminal court or juvenile criminal charges can provide different options than adult court. This is because the state of California does recognize that there is a difference between minor and adult defendants and that most accused individuals under 18 deserve additional consideration.

Some varying degrees of disposition (sentencing) in juvenile court, include:

  • Home supervision
  • Informal probation
  • Deferred entry of judgment
  • Supervised probation
  • Camp placement
  • California Youth Authority

Furthermore, there are many other dispositional options, including community service, counseling, community classes, fines, etc. Knowing the availability of these alternatives is critical in juvenile court proceedings. The probation department is also intimately involved in juvenile cases, so it is important to hire a criminal defense attorney who knows how to handle that channel of communication, to provide all important and relevant information about your son and daughter, aside from simply fighting the case.

When it comes to hiring a criminal defense attorney to handle your son or daughter’s future, you should hire someone with the knowledge and experience to handle the case properly. We will fight for your child's rights throughout every stage of their case.

Don't hesitate to start seeking the best possible outcome in this manner. Call our offices at (626) 784-4143 today.
