Juvenile Justice Fees and Costs Reduced in California

Posted by Neil Shouse | May 03, 2018 | 0 Comments

On January 1, 2018, California reduced many fees in the juvenile court system and made it harder to hold minors in "room confinement" (solitary confinement). The changes resulted from passage of California Senate Bill 190 (SB 190). Among the changes, juveniles under 21 are no longer required to pay for legal representation, home detention or drug/alcohol testing or treatment. They also may not be kept confined for more than four hours unless they pose a threat or it is an emergency.
