How Long Does It Take for Criminal Charges to Be Filed in Juv... [HD]

California juvenile law attorney Ryan McGlinn explains how long the court may take when pressing charges against your child.

While this can be based on a number of factors, it usually boils down to 2 things. If your son or daughter is in juvenile hall, they must be charged within 48 hours (court hours) or they can be released. If they are not in juvenile hall, charges can be filed anytime up to 1 year since the crime they are accused of was committed. This is called a statute of limitation. It’s a certain amount of time they have to charge your child or it’s no longer valid. Most cases can take weeks or months before charges are filed. Watch the video now to learn more.
