Should We Eliminate the Special System of Juvenile Justice?
Is the juvenile court system a “scaled-down, second-class” criminal court? Or, are there real differences that call for a different way of seeking justice with youthful offenders? What would be the consequences of putting all juveniles on trial the same as adults, but allowing “young age” to be a mitigating factor in sentencing?
