Orange County Juvenile Crime Attorney
About Juvenile Offenses in Southern California
California's criminal justice system has the difficult task of enforcing laws and imposing punishment upon individuals who commit crimes. Throughout the state and across Orange County, our criminal justice system also deals uniquely with juveniles who are charged with committing a criminal offense. Because juveniles are under the age of 18, their cases require specialized attention.

In California, there are certain crimes the juvenile justice system sees more often than others. These crimes include:
- Drug crimes, including drug possession
- Minor in possession of alcohol
- Public intoxication
- Petty theft
These crimes are common, as juveniles can be prone to rebellion and may not always understand the consequences of their actions. That does not mean that these crimes are not without their punishment, and it does not mean that prosecutors won't aggressively charge and penalize juveniles who commit more serious theft, sex, or violent crimes. In fact, juveniles can be charged as adults in certain situations.
At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc., we understand the unique and challenging elements of juvenile crime cases. Our experienced criminal attorneys work to help juveniles and parents understand the charges they face, and we fight aggressively to protect their futures.
Because many juvenile courts are focused on rehabilitation rather than strict punishment, we focus on options that can keep clients from behind bars and put them on the path for future success. Whatever the case may be, we want to help our clients reach the best resolution possible in their case, and help them as they put mistakes in their past.
