When a person under the age of 18 is arrested, the laws and penalties can be quite different from those applied to adults. In fact, there is a completely separate court system solely for juveniles charged with a crime. This is why it is important to contact a Juvenile Crimes lawyer in Walnut Creek, CA who understands the local laws and how the court system works. Community service, parental supervision, home arrest, juvenile hall and the California Youth Authority (CYA) are all possible outcomes. Sometimes a minor can be placed on informal probation. If the minor successfully completes the program, the case is dismissed as if it never happened. This can be done by hiring an experienced California Juvenile Crimes attorney on the case.
