    California recognizes the needs of children are different than adults when considering legal cases.  Juvenile cases may go to California’s juvenile court system. If your child is involved in a juvenile delinquency case that means he or she is accused of breaking the law.  If you are in need of legal counsel you can call 714-547-4000 or contact us here for a free consultation.  Below are some of the possible consequences in a juvenile case.

    The court will consider how old your child is, how serious the crime is, and the child’s criminal record if any. The court can order that:

    • Your child live with you under court supervision.
    • Your child be put on probation. He or she may have to live with a relative, in a foster home or group home, or in an institution.
    • Your child be put on probation and sent to a probation camp or ranch.
    • Your child can be sent to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice (also called “DJJ”). If your child is tried in adult court, he or she will be sent to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Adult Operations (also called “CDCR”).

    If your child is sent to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), he or she will go to a “reception center” for the first 30 to 90 days. The center will find out what education and treatment your child needs. Then your child will go a correctional facility or youth camp.
