STOCKTON, Calif., Dec. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Rosenfeld Law Firm announced today that Case # CR-2021-2293, involving a client potentially facing adult murder charges, has been remanded to juvenile court. According to the San Joaquin County Superior Court, Mr. Folkes was originally charged with murder and potentially faced life in prison. California criminal defense attorney Ken Rosenfeld argued that Mr. Folkes's young age should preclude him from facing adult murder charges. Despite objections made by the prosecution regarding the seriousness of the offense, the Court agreed with Rosenfeld that the case be adjudicated by juvenile court. Should Mr. Folkes be found guilty of murder by the juvenile court, he will face a disposition of being committed to a juvenile facility until the age of 25.
Rosenfeld said that the decision by the court to remand the case to juvenile court came as a profound relief for Mr. Folkes.
"Had the case remained in superior court, we're seeing a young man looking at spending the rest of his life in prison," said Rosenfeld. "We're very pleased his case will be tried in an appropriate court for his age."
