Juvenile Crimes

Juveniles in the state of California can be charged with virtually any crime that an adult can be charged with, and depending on the nature of the crime, he or she may be tried in juvenile or adult court. However, the penalties associated with a juvenile conviction are different. The primary goal of the juvenile justice system is treatment and rehabilitation, so juveniles convicted of a crime may face penalties such as:

  • Treatment programs
  • Detention
  • Incarceration
  • Community supervision
  • Probation

In addition, schools have the authority to suspend or expel juvenile students who commit crimes on school property.
