Ventura Juvenile Crime Attorney

Has your child been arrested for or accused of a juvenile crime in Ventura, California? Contact Eisner Gorin LLP today for a free consultation with a skilled defense lawyer.

When a minor is accused of committing a crime, he or she will face legal proceedings in the juvenile court system rather than the adult criminal court system. Juvenile court is meant to be geared toward rehabilitation and treatment, rather than focusing solely on punishment. However, depending upon the circumstances of the offense, a minor may face trial as an adult and therefore the same penalties that an adult would in the same situation.

Juvenile Crime Lawyers in Ventura, California

Juvenile crimes can be classified into two separate categories: status offenses and juvenile delinquency offenses.

  • Status offenses are those actions which are only considered illegal because of the minor’s age. Truancy, curfew violations, and underage drinking are all status offenses.
  • Juvenile delinquency offenses are actions which are illegal no matter the age of the offender. Violent crimes, drug crimes, sex offenses, murder, assault, weapons offenses and gang crimes are all types of juvenile delinquency offenses.

A juvenile crime may also be categorized as a misdemeanor or a felony, and the penalties that a minor may face will depend upon the classification of the offense. A felony is the more serious of the two and may be punishable by imprisonment in a state juvenile institution, as well as lesser penalties of treatment, house arrest, probation, counseling or community service.
