I was booked under PC 470 Forgery, PC484E Grand Theft, PC 459 Burglary as a juvenile. I am trying to get my record sealed and was wondering if I fall into the dependency criteria or the delinquency. I ask this as the petition would have to be filed in different places.
Criminal Defense Attorney
Look at the juvenile complaint against you. Was it filed in dependency court or delinquency court? Such charges can be filed in either court. If no case was filed, I would file your petition is delinquency court, as they deal with the juvenile himself or herself more and not the duties of parents (dependency). The delinquency court sees more of these petitions than dependency courts.
