The California court considers three things when a child is accused of breaking the law:
Once a child is arrested, police can book and release the child or place him or her in juvenile detention. In either case, the police have an immediate obligation to communicate to both child and parent(s) what their legal rights are. Parents also must be told where their child is being held. If your child has been arrested, out Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer may be able to help.
In extreme cases, minor offenders can be tried as an adult and sent to the Division of Adult Operations (CDCR). Children sentenced to incarceration within the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation are generally placed in a reception center for the first 30 to 90 days as their treatment needs are evaluated.
