Reinventing Juvenile Justice

Reinventing Juvenile Justice

June 1993 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
A painful view of the current state of juvenile justice in the United States is presented in this volume which asks whether the 'children's court' has outlived its usefulness. As pressure builds to handle more children in adult courts and to consign them to adult prisons, the authors explore alternatives to the custodial treatment of juveniles and suggest how the juvenile justice system can, and should, be reformed.
