The Orange County resisting arrest lawyers at Wallin & Klarich want to share with you another interesting new ruling. The Court of Appeals has recently held that any student that “resists” a school security officer can be punished as if he/she is resisting arrest from a police officer. The juvenile can be found guilty of the misdemeanor crime of Penal Code Section 148 (a)(1).

If the juvenile is found guilty of resisting arrest in Southern California, he can be placed in juvenile hall for up to one year and can be ordered to pay a fine of $1,000.

This is serious stuff!

The Court of Appeals found that in effect the school protection officers are acting in the same capacity as a police officer in trying to keep the peace on school property.
