I'm not OK w the verdict in the prop 57 hearing the suspect and proof w shown and I'd like to appeal. Is it possible. If not can I filed suit against family since he is a juvenile and both parents claim to support him financially.
Criminal Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

I understand you are not happy about the verdict, I would not be happy either, but this is a matter that is up to the District Attorney and the Court as far as the criminal matter is concerned and legally you cannot pursue any appeal of that decision.

You could sue suit against the child and the family, since they are liable for his conduct, but if the family has no money or owns no property you can seize, then there is nothing you could get from them. However, if they are suing the police for killing their son, as is typical in those cases, if you sue and win you can attach any judgment or settlement they may get from their suit against the police.
