When will my child be released from Juvenile Hall?

Youth are released to a parent or guardian or kept at Juvenile Hall based on the seriousness of the crime, their criminal history, and other information regarding whether or not they pose a threat to the community or are at risk of not showing up at their next Court date. The Probation Department only makes recommendations to the Court. It is the Judge’s decision to determine how long youth will stay in custody and under what conditions they will be released. The Judge will consider the seriousness of the offense, if there have been previous contacts with law enforcement agencies, and how likely the youth is to appear for their next court date, among other things.
