How Juvenile and Adult Criminal Proceedings Differ

call-palmdale-bailbonds

A parent whose child is arrested should know that juvenile court proceedings are not the same as adult proceedings. Juvenile Proceedings are less severe in that less people are involved, they are shorter, they involves less harsh consequences, and they ensure that the record is sealed once the juvenile turns 18. This is all done in an effort to protect the juvenile from being haunted emotionally by this event for the rest of their life.

A judge hears a juvenile court proceeding and there is no jury. The judge decides what the juvenile’s sentence will be and this is done based around the notion that the sentence is meant to offer rehabilitation, rather than a harsh punishment. This is so the juvenile can develop into a healthy and productive adult...

The Role of a Bail Bond Co-Signer

call-palmdale-bailbonds

When a defendant is in the process of bailing out of jail with a bail bond, they will need a loved one to commit to the role of a co-signer. The co-signer is tasked with making sure the defendant shows up for their scheduled court date. How involved they are with this task varies from family to family, as it depends on how mature, responsible, and honest the defendant is. One defendant can get him or herself to court without trouble, while another may attempt to flee the city, which is when the co-signer really needs to step in.

If the defendant does not show up for court, their bail can be revoked and a warrant for their arrest will be issued. Additionally, any collateral that was pledged will not be returned to the owner.

Agreeing to the role of a bail bond co-signer definitely has i...

Juvenile vs. Adult Proceedings

call-palmdale-bailbonds

There are different proceedings, rights, and consequences for someone 17 or younger who gets arrested versus someone 18 or older who is arrested. In most states, anyone 17 or younger is called a juvenile, and when they turn 18, they are called an adult. The differences are due to the fact that juveniles have less understanding of the law and are still considered minors.

  • Juvenile hearings are heard by judges only, whereas an adult has a trial by a jury.
  • Juveniles do not have the right to bail; they are released to the custody of their parents or legal guardians. Adults may be granted or denied bail.
  • Juveniles do not have a public trial.
  • On his or her 18th birthday, juvenile records are automatically sealed. So when they become an adult, their criminal record appears clean...

What Determines Own Recognizance Release

call-palmdale-bailbonds

Not all who are arrested are given the opportunity to be released on own recognizance. Own recognizance is when a defendant signs formal papers promising to show up for court, then is released from jail. Most defendants are granted bail, meaning they have to pay money to the court in order to be released from jail. Some are denied bail altogether. What factors determine own recognizance and bail?

    Who determines: The judge.

    What factors contribute: A defendant’s prior criminal record, the current crime he or she is accused of, the ties and relationships the defendant has to others in the community, and their financial ability to pay for bail.

As you can probably guess, if a defendant has virtually no prior criminal history, has strong ties to the community, and the crime he or she is...
