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.
