Contested Juvenile Detention Hearing on a Penal Code section 192(c)(1) Felony Vehicular Manslaughter Charge Results in Client being Released Pending Adjudication of the Charges!

Recently at a Los Angeles County juvenile courthouse attorney Steve Escovar was able to have a juvenile released from detention following a contested detention hearing.

Our client has recently been charged with violating Penal Code section 192(c)(1), felony vehicular manslaughter. Our client was arrested and detained in juvenile hall pending the filing of the charges.

At the detention hearing, Mr. Escovar clearly laid out the factors supporting release of the minor to his parents during the pendency of the adjudication of this matter. Mr. Escovar argued to the court that our client posed no flight risk, had significant ties to the community, posed no threat to the public, and that release would be in his best interest.

After rebuttal from the prosecution, the court granted release of the minor to his parents! This is a great result, allowing our client to reside at home, as opposed to in custody, while we fight the charges on his behalf.
