Juvenile crimes at the fair

During fair week, everyone feels a little festive. It is time to people watch, eat some funnel cake and get your thrills riding... a stolen car? While most people would choose to get their thrills by riding the Vortex, police say that one juvenile chose to get his thrill by stealing a car and leading them on a chase. A recent news story gives more details about the California teenager's alleged juvenile crimes

Two police officers were in the fair parking lot when they were alerted by someone that their car was allegedly being stolen. The officers followed the suspect, a 17-year-old, out of the parking and onto the streets of the town. Supposedly, once the driver became aware that he was being followed, he accelerated the vehicle and collided with another car. The driver of the other vehicle suffered leg injuries and was taken to the local hospital. 

The teen driver then continued to flee from police, eventually crashing into a retaining wall at a bank. He was apprehended and charged with felony DUI, grand theft of a vehicle and resisting arrest. He is currently being held in juvenile custody. Authorities believe alcohol was a factor. 

This juvenile is now facing some serious charges that can definitely have an impact on his future. He is likely to be gathering the facts of the case and preparing a criminal defense. Other individuals in California charged with juvenile crimes may wish to seek the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney for help to present their side of the case and get the charges reduced or dropped altogether.
