If information from your juvenile court record was provided to your school, you (or your parent or guardian) have the right to make a written request to the school principal that your school records be reviewed to ensure that the juvenile court record has been destroyed. You may make this request after one of the following events has occurred: [1] you have graduated from high school; [2] you are released from juvenile court jurisdiction; or [3] you have reached the age of 18. Within 30 days of receiving your request, the principal must respond in writing and either confirm that the record has been destroyed or explain why it has not been destroyed. RELEASE OF JUVENILE COURT RECORDS: If you wish to have your juvenile court record released to you, rather than destroyed, you may request such a release in writing. The court may either grant your request or order that your record be retained for good cause. To obtain your juvenile court record, you must send a written request to the juvenile court which contains your full name, date of birth, and the juvenile court case number. Your request must be received before the time your records may be destroyed. After your juvenile record is destroyed or released to you, if you discover that any other agency still retains a record of your case, you may petition the court to order that record destroyed. Your petition must contain your full name, date of birth, the juvenile court case number, the name of the agency that has the record, and the type of record to be destroyed. The court may either grant your petition or order that your record be retained by the agency for good cause. CONFIDENTIALITY OF JUVENILE COURT RECORDS Generally, juvenile court records are confidential. Under certain circumstances, however, information about you and your case may be disclosed to other persons or agencies by the court, by a law enforcement agency, or by your school. Parts of your record may be open to public inspection if the juvenile court finds that you committed a serious offense listed in Welf. & Inst. Code § 676. Also, if the DA files a criminal complaint against you in "adult court," the confidentiality protecting juvenile court records will not apply to your records. Ask your attorney to explain these laws to you. CALL THE SEALING CLERK AT (858) 694-4315 for an appointment to seal yo
