Juvenile Prosecutions

The San Luis Obispo District Attorney’s Office prosecutes juveniles who commit crimes in San Luis Obispo County.  A juvenile is someone under age 18.  Deputy District Attorneys who specialize in juvenile cases are assigned to this unit. 
The law grants a high degree of confidentiality to juvenile cases, and most information about these criminal cases is not public.  Generally, court hearings in Juvenile Court are not open to the public.  If you are a victim in a juvenile case, please visit the San Luis Obispo District Attorney’s Victim Witness Assistance Center.
