    Juvenile Traffic and Other Infractions

    Minors cited for traffic violations and other non-traffic related infractions will receive a courtesy notice from the Court. This courtesy notice will provide information on how to take care of these matters. Typically, minors may either post and forfeit their bail (the fine plus penalty assessments and other fees) or appear in court by the due date on the notice.

    Juvenile Traffic Misdemeanors

    Minors cited for more serious traffic violations will be required to meet with the Probation Department, Juvenile Services Division. For more information about Juvenile Probation, please click here.

Overview

Juvenile Court has jurisdiction over court related matters for minors (persons under 18 years of age.) Individuals may also be ordered to appear in Juvenile Court after the age of 18, if they are charged with a crime committed before they turned 18 years old.

California law mandates that juvenile proceedings and records are strictly confidential. These proceedings and records cannot be viewed by anyone other than the parties involved in the case. In rare instances, parties may petition the Court to disclose juvenile records. Unless there is an order from the Juvenile Court authorizing disclosure of juvenile records, no such public access is permitted.
