Juvenile Crime Charges in Orange County

Orange County Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney

Need an attorney for a juvenile crime case in Orange County? Juveniles, persons under the age of 18, can run afoul of the law without considering that they could face very serious legal problems when caught. Common juvenile crimes include shoplifting, malicious mischief, underage drinking, drug possession, truancy and curfew violations. Young people can make mistakes, sometimes serious ones. The juvenile court system treats minors differently than adults in order to educate and rehabilitate a young person to become a responsible adult.

Minors can be impulsive and shouldn't be harshly judged or severely punished for errors in judgment. It is far preferable if a case against a minor is heard in juvenile court instead of being tried as an adult. An Orange County criminal defense attorney with a strong background as a public defender provides the compassionate understanding and aggressive defense your child deserves.

Defending the Youth - Safeguarding Their Future

Minors can be accused of serious offenses which are typically thought of as adult crimes such as rape, murder, manslaughter, theft, and drug crimes.
