Juvenile Crimes & Delinquency

San Francisco Criminal Law Firm -
San Francisco - Marin - Contra Costa - Alameda - Santa Clara. San Mateo Counties

Learning that one’s child faces criminal charges is a frightening experience for any parent.

If your child is convicted of a crime, the consequences range from conditional release into the custody of a parent, probation, placement in a foster home or imprisonment in the California Youth Authority (prison for juveniles).

A single mistake can have lasting consequences.

Once juveniles have been labeled “criminals”, they become more likely to commit other crimes in the future, and to associate with other juveniles who have been similarly labeled. That’s why it’s so important to catch problematic behavior as early as possible. A juvenile may have a few brushes with the law and escape with just a warning or a citation, but the pattern for future misbehavior is already being formed.

A skilled juvenile defense lawyer can greatly improve the outcome of your child’s case, and help your child get back on the right track.

Attorney Christopher F. Morales can use his knowledge of juvenile court procedures to:

  • get the case diverted, so your child is not incarcerated and has no criminal record.
  • arrange for your child’s release from detention until the case is heard.
  • keep your child from being certified and tried as an adult. Consequences of an adult conviction include long prison sentences.

Mr. Morales defends juveniles charged with:

  • Drug possession
  • Gang violence
  • Robbery, theft & burglary
  • Assault
  • Sex crimes
  • Murder
  • Other juvenile delinquency matters

Mr. Morales’ experience handling juvenile cases with compassion and respect extends to parents, as well. He can advise you and your child about your options and your rights, and help you make an informed choice.

Mr. Morales can help your child get the second chance he or she deserves.
