Teens charged with juvenile crimes in California

Unfortunately when a child is associated with criminal activity it can start a perception about the child that can follow a person for life. When authority figures believe that a child has committed some crime, they are more likely to maintain a negative opinion of the child's personality and abilities. A minor has not fully matured, and should be given the chance to develop so that he or she can become a fully functioning member of society. Recently, two teens were arrested and charged with juvenile crimes following their alleged participation in the robbery of a California convenience store. 

Three individuals were supposedly involved in the robbery. The police report reveals that three masked persons entered the store and allegedly held up the location with a handgun. The suspects were able to access the cash drawer and fled the scene with several hundred dollars on the night of Aug. 29. 

Police apparently identified the individuals as one 18-year-old man and two juvenile teens, aged 15 and 16. The three were charged with robbery and were arrested. The teens are being held in a local juvenile detention center. 

The California teens are facing significant criminal charges for their juvenile crimes. Should the case be one of mistaken identity, this case can have a devastating effect on the future of the underage individuals. Other facts of the case remain to be uncovered, and the teens are likely preparing a criminal defense against the charges. Other juveniles facing similar charges may be wondering about the best way to proceed after being charged with a crime. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help prepare a defense for persons who need to have criminal charges dropped or eliminated.
