Juvenile Justice

Transcript: The connection the parent's make with the child can have a major influence on the child's actions -family functioning (broken homes, mother and father figures, no essential role in the family; then they tend to stray away) -Affect the decisions they make -change their attitudes towards certain things, -behavior and habits -Teens often look for the approval from their peers -Teens are vulnerable to adapting values, good or bad, from their peers. -Depending on how important a person is to the individual, they can drastically change their out look on things - "Bless Me Ultima" - "Always Running" Nervous System -John Locke's idea of tabula rasa states that an individual's knowledge comes from their own experience and perception. - In Buddhism there is a concept known as reincarnation; it is the idea that after death a person is reborn and their actions are based on their moral quality from their past life/lives. The influence peers have on an individual can affect them directly. Poverty is always single-handedly blamed for the actions of juvenile delinquents. There is concrete evidence that backs up the idea that juvenile behavior is the result of the genetic imbalance and the social disconnection they have with their parents and peers. How a person is born and raised is a critical component that builds character, and depending on these things it can either push or pull a person into a life of crime. -The unbalanced biochemistry [caused by the release of hormones in the brain] in a teen can affect their emotions; which can make them act irrationally and impulsively. -There are things that occur in life that can trigger and emotion in child, and that alone can make them act a certain way.

Juvenile Justice

Transcript: Adjudicatory Hearing Juveniles are entitled to an initial hearing, which allows them to discuss the validity and reasons why to the cause of detainment. Although they may have this right, the Supreme Court has ruled that juveniles don't have a constitutional right to bail, which is referred to as preventive detention. This is practiced to protect the juvenile from harming the community and future crime. Who Is A Juvenile? Juveniles are children under the age of 18 in most states, and 17 and 16 in other states. Before, the Juvenile Justice system was much harsher on juveniles due to the fact that all of them didn't get any of their rights due to being underage. Now, everyone, no matter the age, receives the right to an attorney and don't have to incriminate themselves. Juveniles in Custody Juvenile Justice Juvenile Justice Today Status offenses are crimes that only juveniles may commit, not adults. Many status offenses include: runaways, truant offenders, and age-specific crimes. Status Offenses Status Offenses Cont. Usually, juveniles are released if offenses are minor. Initial Hearing Many people believe juveniles that commit crimes are emotionally troubled and should have some sort of counseling or guidance before incarceration. Intake Intake is the informal process by which court officials or social workers decide if a complaint against a juvenile should be referred to a juvenile court. This all takes place after the minor is interviewed and questioned thoroughly to know about their current situation as to why they committed the offense. Juveniles are given a similar type of trial to that of adults called an adjudicatory hearing, where its purpose is to determine the facts of the case. However, more information is protected and withheld from the press due to privacy issues and age-restrictive regulations.
