Teen charged with sexual assault and burglaries in California

When a person is young, he or she may not have the best judgment and maturity. This is why many young people make poor decisions that result in serious legal problems. One teenager seems to be in this category and is now facing sexual assault charges in California.

The teenager was recently arrested under suspicion in connection with several recent burglaries and an alleged sexual assault of a minor girl. The suspect, a 17-year-old boy, was arrested one afternoon in mid-August. Investigators believe the suspect may be connected with five recent burglaries, and he could be connected with even more.

The police had already been looking for a suspect for some time. Apparently, investigators had released surveillance photos of a suspect in mid-July and had warned local residents to keep their doors and windows locked. The police stepped up their investigation efforts after a parent reported that somebody had cut the screen from their daughter's bedroom window and then sexually assaulted the young girl. The identity of the suspect has not yet been released to the public by police.

On the other hand, the suspect has not been convicted of any crimes as of now. All defendants are assumed innocent until proven guilty in the court of law in California. The suspect in this case will want to begin to prepare himself for a challenging legal battle in court. However, with the proper preparation and legal knowledge, it is possible the defendant may be able to implement an effective legal defense strategy against the sexual assault and burglary charges.
