Q. What rights do 17 year olds have in California?
A: The same as any child, unless the DA succeeds in prosecuting them as an adult. In that case, they have the same rights as any adult.
Q. Can california laws prohibit a woman to have children under any circumstaces?
A: Yes, but a Judge would have to take away the right to procreate and ther are only a few ways that can happen. That can happen as the result of a Conservatorship, where developmental disabilities mean that an adult lacks the ability to consent to have sex, and/or lacks understanding regarding the consequences of sex. A Conservatee might receive an injectable birth control against their wishes and it could be within the law
Q. What can I legaly do to a person who is trespassing
A: The crime of trespassing requires a 1st warning, and the trespass after warning could be prosecuted as a misdemeanor. There is the civil remedy of getting a restraining order. Certain kinds of "trespass" involving easments, riparian (water) rights, and restrictions of use might also give rise to additional civil actions and even monetary damages.
