    Default Access To Police Reports

    hi, I'm not sure if this is the right section to post, but here goes.
    So heres the situation, a couple of juveniles (17yr olds) get caught for a felony crime and was convicted. Do they all have access to each other police report? And if they do is there a way they can sealed that police report.

    My 2nd question is if the record for that crime is sealed, can the convicted accomplice get a hold of the police report of other accomplice.

    I will greatly appreciate if you can help. THANKS!


    btw its in CA

    When you choose to ignore the instruction not to reply to your own thread, the consequence is often that people believe your question has been answered.

    California is quite restrictive in access to police reports. I don't see any reason why having been a co-defendant in a resolved criminal case would give anybody special access, although I would be surprised if in fact there were more than one police report out of a single investigation or if the defendant's lawyer did not obtain a copy during the course of the original prosecution.

    They can ASK for the reports, but the police are under no obligation to provide them under most circumstances. Absent a court order compelling their release, I cannot conceive a situation where they would be released to the parties involved.

    If the matter went to court, their attorneys already had copies of the reports.

    For information on sealing or expunging records or sealing juvenile records, check this site out from the CA courts:
