Question: I’m 16 and was caught stealing in Los Angeles, CA. I’m a first time offender and don’t know what to do in court. I was charged with a misdemeanor, what should I do? I would like to have an attorney if I can so I don’t have to go through this alone. Plus my friend used you before and you were able to get his case dismissed and I am hoping that you can do that with my case
Answer: If you are 16, then this matter will be handled in juvenile court. I would recommend that you consult with and hire a criminal defense attorney about you case in more detail as there are some variables when defending this case. Not only can a criminal defense attorney guide you through the process, but they also may be able to mitigate consequences in the matter at hand.
