Product Description

This Cases and Materials on Juvenile Justice Administration casebook focuses on three themes: legal and administrative consequences of regulating children rather than adults; procedural and substantive implications of a justice system that emphasizes treatment rather than punishment; and tensions between discretion and rules that occur in a system that treats children rather than punishes adults. It incorporates empirical evaluations and presents psychological research into controversial issues such as gender and racial disparities in juvenile justice administration. The book examines the pretrial detention of juveniles and examines how and when states try youths in criminal court rather than in juvenile court. It also explores the alternative sentencing options available to juvenile courts.

Table of Contents includes:
Origins and history of the juvenile court;
Delinquency and status offense jurisdiction of the juvenile court;
Law enforcement and issues of criminal procedure in the context of juveniles;
Case screening, diversion, and other informal methods to resolve delinquency referrals;
Pretrial detention;
How and when states try youths in criminal court;
Juveniles' trial rights;
Dispositional process and alternative sentencing options.
