my daughter was committed of a crime at age 15yrs old, she was accused of hitting a 12yr old girl, and "taking the girls cell phone". this all happened near my daughters school. i was not given a call until my child had been arrested; the school never called me they just took my child to juvenile. and she's still being forced to serve time in a group home. was this legal?
Criminal Defense Attorney
Your daughter needs a qualified criminal defense attorney. It appears if she is being charged with a robbery (Pen. Code 211) - which is felony charge. There may be defenses available to her that could result in the case being dismissed - or at least the charge reduced to a grand theft from a person (Pen. Code 487(c)), which is a much less serious charge on her record.
