Juvenile Crimes Archives

California's harsh sentencing laws toned down by governor

Gov. Jerry Brown recently rolled back some of California's harsh sentencing laws, making some prosecutors and other law enforcement officials unhappy. The package of bills Brown signed will cut jail and prison sentences for juveniles and adults.

Does California's growing diversity breed more crime? Not hardly.

There's a truth disruption at work regarding the reality of juvenile crime in California and its link with the state's progressively increasing immigrant and minority population, and it's emanating from a singular source that should be far more cautious and accurate in its appraisals.

Proposition 57 may impact juvenile crimes system

In November 2016, Proposition 57 was voted into law in California. This places a strong emphasis on rehabilitation over incarceration. Not only will it likely have significant impact on the juvenile crimes system in the state, but could directly affect two young men who were charged with murder and attempted murder (the one charged with the latter has since been convicted).

Practical tips for any parent of a child charged with a crime

Surely, some parents in California received phone calls from law enforcement officers this holiday season that changed their lives in an instant. Any parent who has had a child charged with a crime can likely relate to the emotions such phone calls may trigger. Learning that one's son or daughter is in trouble with the law can bring on feelings of worry, anger and even fear.

Minimizing negative impact for child charged with a crime

Most California parents are like others who work hard to provide for their families and merely want what is best for their children. Life, however, is seldom without challenge, and some parents' situations are a lot more stressful than others. For instance, those that involve a child charged with a crime may leave concerned parents feeling as though the world has dropped out from under them.
