There are times when a simple error in childhood judgment can result in serious criminal charges. While California created the juvenile court system to rehabilitate and correct illegal behavior in children, there are some serious juvenile crimes for which the State believes this approach simply will not work.

In some instances, the Prosecutor decides whether to charge a child as either an adult or as a juvenile – there are advantages and disadvantages to both. Generally, these are complicated issues that you should discuss with an attorney. Stone Law will defend your child against a variety of charges including:
- Assault with a Deadly Weapon
- Drug crimes
- Sexual assault
