Prepared, Experienced, Results-Oriented Juvenile Court Attorney
Richard Wagner is an excellent juvenile court attorney. He has been practicing criminal law since 1998. Richard Wagner wins cases by obtaining acquittals, getting serious charges (felony and misdemeanor) dismissed, or negotiating the original more serious charges to a lesser serious offense.
For parents with the misfortune of being notified of Juvenile delinquency cases involving children under the age of 18, this is a special kind of case. These cases involve a minor who has allegedly committed a delinquent act which would be considered a crime if committed by an adult.
However, if the minor is over 14 years old and the alleged delinquent act is a serious offense, such as murder or a sex crime, the minor could be tried as an adult in adult criminal court. Prop. 57 requires juvenile cases to be filed in juvenile court. Although the DA can seek “transfer” of the minor to adult court. Juvenile Transfer Hearings were formerly known as Fitness Hearings.
Especially, in these cases, you need a powerful defense. The judge decides if the court will intervene in the minor’s future. If it does, the judge has to consider the appropriate course of action for the minor, and how to make the minor take responsibility for his or her actions.
Juvenile Hearing Options
A judge or commissioner of the California juvenile court may dismiss the petition or may set aside the findings. The Law Office of Richard Wagner convinced juvenile courts to dismiss the petition in the interests of justice and because the welfare of the juvenile require such dismissal. In other cases, the judge or commissioner of the California juvenile court found that the juvenile was not in need of treatment or rehabilitation.
The court decides how to care for, treat, and guide the minor. This can include punishment so the minor learns to obey the law.
