Direct filing in adult court on a juvenile may be initiated by a grand jury indictment

January 14, 2016 Comments off

“Welfare and Institutions Code section 707, subdivision (d), adopted as part of Proposition 21, the ‘Gang Violence and Juvenile Crime Prevention Act of 1998,’ allows prosecutors the option of filing charges against certain juveniles accused of specified offenses, directly in criminal court. Here we determine whether this provision allows prosecutors to charge such juveniles in criminal court by grand jury indictment. We conclude it does, and thus affirm the Court of Appeal.”
