Each year, more than 200,000 young offenders are tried in adult courts where they face stiffer penalties than they would ordinarily face in the juvenile justice system. Through objective discussion, numerous direct quotes, and full-color illustrations this title examines What are the Roots of the Juvenile Offender Controversy? Are Juveniles Responsible for the Crimes They Commit? Do Adult Court Sentences Deter Juvenile Crime? Should Juvenile Offenders Face the Death Penalty? Can Juvenile Offenders Be Rehabilitated?
