In California, the Juvenile Court’s jurisdiction is over minors between the ages of 12 and 17. You should also note that even if your child committed a crime at this age, 尽管犯罪直到多年后才被发现, 他或她仍可能作为未成年人受审.
If your child was recently accused of juvenile delinquency, 在大多数情况下, he or she will appear before a judge in a juvenile detention hearing. Depending on the severity of the crime allegedly committed by your child, the judge will determine whether your child should remain in custody until the date of his or her jurisdictional hearing or be released to you, 父母或监护人, 直到今天.
Juvenile Delinquency proceedings are entirely different than adult criminal proceedings. In the case of a juvenile, there is no right to bail like in adult proceedings. The Court can simply “detain” a juvenile, in custody at the Juvenile Hall without a right to release.
Additionally, there is no right to a jury trial when it comes to juvenile delinquency proceedings. The Court will hold a jurisdictional hearing where evidence will be presented, 证人被传唤作证. 在听完所有证据之后, the Juvenile Court Judge will issue a ruling as to whether the allegations that were filed against your child will be deemed to be true and whether your child will be adjudged a Ward of the Court.
