Solano County Juvenile Appeal Lawyers
Juvenile Defense Attorneys in Fairfield, California
While all criminal matters are unfortunate, juvenile delinquency cases are matters of an especially grave nature. Young children and adults with most of their lives ahead of the face the branding of a criminal and failure at such a young age that it is no surprise to anyone if they continue in that pattern well into their adulthood. These young people should have the best chance of fighting their juvenile crimes charges so that their childhood mistakes do not ruin their chance for a brighter future. The juvenile criminal process can be daunting for both the minor and his or her parents.
Unfortunately, the initial hearing does not always go as planned, especially if they lack the representation of a Solano County juvenile crime attorney. However, there may be a way to continue fighting the conviction. A minor has the right to request a rehearing of his or her legal matter. If your child's trial has concluded with an unsatisfactory result, it is essential that you contact a criminal lawyer immediately, as you only have 10 days to request a rehearing after the written copy of the juvenile judge’s finding and order are mailed by the clerk’s office.
An application for a rehearing may also be made in person. If your request for a rehearing is denied, you then have the right to file an appeal. This appeal must be filed within 60 days of the final order or within 30 days of the mailing date of the notice informing you of the denied rehearing. A notice of appeal must be filed with the juvenile court, and this must be filed properly with full information in order to have a chance to be approved.
