Redressing Victims and Restoring Balance by Van Nuys Criminal Attorney:

A key aspect of juvenile justice is addressing the harm done to alleged victims. Van Nuys Criminal Attorney advocates for restorative justice, allowing young offenders to comprehend the consequences of their actions and participate in restitution. This practice fosters empathy and responsibility, aiding in the healing process for all involved parties.

The Unique Landscape of Juvenile vs. Adult Criminal Cases

In juvenile court, notable differences from the adult criminal justice system include:

1. No Jury Trials: Juvenile adjudications are decided by judges or bench officers, focusing on rehabilitation over punishment. In adult courts, there is a right to a jury trial or bench trial, which is a trial by a judge only.

2. No Right to Bail: Detention decisions for minors are made at detention hearings, not through bail. Bail is predominantly an issue addressed in adult criminal courts.

3. Parental Involvement: Parents or guardians are actively involved in the court process, their input influencing case outcomes. The adult courts are focused on the adult “defendant†and seldom allow families to be actively involved in the court process.

4. Closed Hearings: To protect the privacy of young offenders, most juvenile hearings are not open to the public. With few exceptions, adult criminal courts are open to the public.

The Vital Role of Criminal Attorneys in Juvenile Defense

Recognizing these differences, Van Nuys Criminal Attorney tailor our strategies to align with juvenile justice principles. We offer comprehensive legal representation, ensuring minors’ rights are protected while focusing on broader rehabilitative goals. Our support often extends to guiding families through the complex juvenile justice system.
