Juvenile Remains in Juvenile Hall after Gang-Related Assault

CHARGE

Gang Related Stabbing – Assault With a Deadly Weapon (Knife)

RESULT

8 Months Juvenile Hall - No County Jail or Prison

My client was a juvenile charged as an adult in Santa Clara County Superior Court with assault with a deadly weapon, Penal Code § 245(a)(1) and a gang related enhancement under Penal Code § 186.22(b)(1)(B), which subjected him to up to nine years in the state prison. Additionally, my client was facing an affidavit of probation violation for multiple grants of probation in juvenile court. My client's maximum exposure in juvenile court was approximately 9 years as well. My client was facing an assault with a deadly weapon charge for being the stabber in a gang related stabbing. Police found my client in the same park that the stabbing occurred in just minutes before, and with a bloody knife. It was subsequently determined by DNA testing that the blood on the knife was the victim's blood. Moreover, the victim identified my client as the stabber. The result of the case was that my client never left juvenile hall after his arrest in this case. He never set foot in county jail or prison. He was released in just 8 months on both cases after the incident and rejoined his family. Huge win!
