With juvenile crimes, a lawyer is the key to a child's rights

Here in California, as well as across the United States, juveniles and adults alike are expected to follow the same laws. If these laws are violated, an individual can be held accountable in the court of law. But here is where the similarities between juveniles and adults stop in the eyes of the law.

The questions Riley v. California left unanswered

As many of our Alameda County readers know, jurisdictional boundaries are the reason that a decision made in the court of one state may not impact a case in another state. The exception to this rule is of course the U.S. Supreme Court. Decisions made at this level oftentimes impact cases across the nation in both the criminal and civil courts. And as you may know from reading one of our articles, some cases are more impactful than others.

How did Gideon v. Wainwright impact the criminal justice system?

As many of our California readers already know, you are afforded a number of rights under the U.S. Constitution. One of these rights is the right to court-appointed counsel which is afforded to you by the Sixth Amendment in federal prosecutions and extended to state trials under the Fourteenth Amendment.
