Juvenile Charged with Vandalism Accepts Accountability & Legal Win
Charge: Juvenile Vandalism (PC § 594(B)(1))
Result: Case Dismissed
Our client, a juvenile, was charged with vandalism after accidentally shooting out a neighbor’s two windows with a BB gun while playing with friends.
Though the act was undoubtedly irresponsible, it was crucial for us to ensure that the legal process treated our young client fairly and recognized their unique circumstances.
Defending a juvenile client poses distinct challenges, as the legal system must strike a balance between accountability and recognizing the potential for growth and rehabilitation.
By advocating for a rehabilitative approach, our skilled San Diego criminal defense attorney secured the dismissal of all charges for our client, giving him a well-deserved second chance by taking responsibility for his actions — without life-changing legal penalties jeopardizing his future.
