What Is The Court Process For A Minor Who Is Charged With A DUI In California?
Attorney Myles L. Berman explains once a minor is cited for a DUI in California in juvenile court, he or she is given a notice to appear. That minor has to appear with the parent or guardian on the initial court proceeding. The relevant inquiry with a minor who is arrested for a DUI in the juvenile court is, should the minor be a ward of the court or adjudicated a ward of the court. If the minor becomes a ward of the court or adjudicated a ward of the court, the court can impose sanctions and punishments on the minor and make sure that the parent or the guardian is present for the entire process each time there is a proceeding in court. There is no jury trial in juvenile court, they aren’t entitled to juries. So, when a minor is brought into court, it’s a whole different type of proceeding compared to an adult person.
