Transcript: Options and Punishments in the Juvenile Court System

We have represented juveniles in Los Angeles Superior Court on misdemeanors and felonies for over a quarter century. We can send the case out of the criminal justice system, out of the juvenile court. We can get, very often, with the district attorney's office and do an informal diversion program which results in no record whatsoever.

If the case does go to court, informal diversion or deferred entry of judgment is another option that's available.
Other possible punishments include home on probation, include a time in a juvenile facility within the community.

If there's a criminal case, an arrest or an investigation, you also need to make sure that you've got a good lawyer to make sure that this does not result in the stain of a criminal record. That's what we're here for.

Thank you.
