Juvenile Justice System & Juvenile in Adult

Juvenile Justice System & Juvenile in Adult . Fear of out-of-control juvenile crime and a coming generation of “super-predators,” compellingly if erroneously described publicly and to Congress in 1996, has undermined the traditional practice of treating young offenders as different from adult criminals – less culpable because of their age and more amenable to rehabilitation. In recent years, the focus has turned to punishment and in particular to the transfer of increasing numbers of youthful offenders from juvenile to criminal courts. These “solutions” have been demonstrated to be doing more harm than good. This policy paper provides information on changes in the JJS and analyzes why the increased prosecution of juveniles in adult court is another failed “get tough” policy which is unjust and harmful to children and does nothing to increase public safety

The first court designed specifically to deal with children was established in Chicago one hundred years ago and led to the development of a separate JJS nationwide. Juvenile courts are responsible for dealing with children who are accused of committing two types of offenses: status offenses – violations of laws with which only children can be charged (e.g., running away from home); and delinquency offenses – acts committed by a child which, if committed by an adult, could result in criminal prosecution.
