Nationwide, fewer juvenile offenders are being tried as adults

The nonprofit Campaign for Youth Justice (CFYJ) has just issued a new report on the trends in the prosecution, sentencing and incarceration of juvenile offenders in the U.S. The report contained a great deal of good news. One trend is unmistakable: Far fewer young people in our nation are being tried as adults or incarcerated in adult prisons.

U.S. Supreme Court: More leniency for juvenile offenders

In 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court recognize that juvenile offenders should not be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole except in the "rare" instances where a "crime reflects irreparable corruption."

Discussing juvenile crimes and the legal process

A lot of the discussion that surrounds criminal activity centers on the devastating impact that these criminal charges can have on the accused individual. There’s jail time and fines, a criminal record that must be accounted for, and myriad other consequences that can afflict someone who is accused of or convicted of a crime. These are serious matters that any accused person needs to consider when they are arrested or their case goes to trial.
