Gerald Gault was a 15 year-old accused of making an obscene telephone call to a neighbor, Mrs. Cook, on June 8, 1964 in Arizona.
After Mrs. Cook filed a complaint, Gault and a friend, Ronald Lewis, were arrested and taken to the Children’s Detention Home.
At the time of the arrest, Gault’s parents were at work. The arresting officer left no notice for them, did not make an effort to inform them of their son’s arrest .
At the conclusion of the hearing, the judge committed Gault to juvenile detention for six years, until he turned 21.
Gault’s parents filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, which was dismissed by both the Superior Court of Arizona and the Arizona Supreme Court.
