Redding Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Shasta County Juvenile Offenses Attorney
In California, a child as young as 14 can be charged as an adult for committing a serious crime such as rape or a weapons crime. Even convictions for less serious crimes can negatively affect a young person’s future. That is why you need a juvenile crimes defense lawyer to represent your child.
My name is Joe Gazzigli. If your child needs a defense attorney for a juvenile crime, I can help. I have been a criminal defense attorney for more than 35 years and I understand the nuances of juvenile prosecutions. Please call my Redding office at 530-241-6900.
Juvenile Crimes Defense
I can defend your child against a variety of criminal charges, including:
- Drug charges
- Underage drinking and drunk driving
I can also provide weapons charges defense, whether the weapon was used in a crime or the child brought the weapon to school.
Juveniles who engage in sexual activity may be charged with a sexual offense even if the sex was consensual. Sex between an older minor and another under age 16 can lead to criminal charges and possible registration as a sex offender, which has lifelong consequences.
Another sex crime charge common to juveniles is possession and distribution of pornography. Criminal charges may result if, for instance, a juvenile takes photos or videos of a friend using a cell phone. Sharing those images over the Internet can result in serious federal charges.
