According to Bartollas and Schmalleger (2014), the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges recommends that a script be used by the judge to ensure that due process rights of the juvenile are maintained. These due process rights are given to the juvenile as a result of the Kent, Gault, Winship, Breed v. Jones, and McKeiver cases (p. 373). The Kent v. United States case was a critical case that involved the right to counsel of juveniles in criminal cases. In “Kent v. United States the Court was narrowly focused on whether a child had a right to due process protections in hearings to determine if his case should be transferred out of juvenile court so that he could be tried as though he were an adult criminal defendant” (Mosher,

On March 23, 2010, a cop drew closer Israel Leija, Jr. at a drive-in diner with a warrant for his capture. Leija continued to lead the police on a fast pursue on the interstate while occasionally calling the police dispatcher, saying that he had a weapon and threatening to shoot the officers pursuing him.

In these cases, we saw even though they are minors that if the courts wanted to hold juveniles accountable for their crimes as they would adults then guidelines had to be set to ensure the violation of juvenile liberties are not continued. We can see the cases that set the precedent for changes in the juvenile justice system for example, the graph below:
Mistakes or murders? Children or criminals? Answering these questions requires much deliberation. Trying juveniles in adult court cases isn't orthodox. But such incidents are increasing in America. In 2014 two Wisconsin girls stabbed their classmate 19 times. The state found the twelve-year-olds guilty without considering psychological imbalances (Hanna, Jason). Natural instinct urges one to comply with the decision. However, certain circumstances change perspectives, but only when presented. Trying minors as adults isn't sensible and overlooks many conflicts. Juveniles aren't mentally developed, risk harm in jail, and don't receive adult rights.
Juvenile Court Jurisdiction “Once and Adult, Always an Adult” (NCSL.ORG). I feel the maxium age of Juvenile court jurisdiction should be 15 years old. The reason I say that because once a child reached pubertity they know whats right and wrong, if the system keep making excuses for them when they commit a serious crime they just going end back up in juvenile. For example if a child kill somebody with a gun, that child knew what the consequences was before they pull trigger on the gun. If we keep saying they kids and they don’t deserve that harsh punishment, once they reach adult hood then what you going say. If you don’t punish the child now than its going be hard to punish them later.However I feel like any child under ten should not get sent to juvenile or be trial in court as a juvenile. The reason I say that because on page (7) the book talks about that “any person younger than minium age of juvenile court are believed to lack the ability to know whats right and wrong”. I agree with the book because how can you tell a child that’s 8 years old they going juvenile because they did something wrong. Just because the child commit the act that child brain level and maturity level is not up there to understand what they did. Everybody maturity level is not the same, you can be 8 years old but
Daniel first became involved in the justice system at age 16. His legal history includes five intake contacts and two violations of parole. Daniel has had an intake contact for a felony offense. None of the intake contacts were for felony offenses against another person. He has no history of escape. He has had three juvenile detention confinements and no other court ordered placements.
Alison Croggon once said, “We are all mistaken sometimes; sometimes we do wrong things, things that have bad consequences. But it does not mean we are evil, or that we cannot be trusted ever afterward.” Can what she said really apply to those who commit wrong doings such as taking
The border between juvenile justice and criminal justice did not endure the juvenile court’s first century. By the 1980s, there was general disappointment with both the means and the ends of normal juvenile justice. As with every other social repair efforts, it is difficult to say whether frustration with juvenile justice was born of erroneous concept or of wretched execution. The administering accepted by justice policy, however, was unmistakable. Juvenile courts began to adopt the sentiment and standpoint of criminal courts. Many States redesigned their laws to curtail the confidentiality of juvenile court proceedings and juvenile court records. Most States increased the legal etiquette used in juvenile court and shifted the objective of the juvenile justice process away from individualized intervention. Instead, juvenile courts and juvenile justice agencies began to focus on public safety and criminal accountability. In addition, nearly All States enacted laws to toss more youths to criminal court where they could be tried and punished as adults. In the span of a single century the American justice system had favorably embraced and then largely abandoned the concept of using a alternative legal system for crimes committed by the young. No single concern in juvenile justice has captured the attention of the public or of policymakers like criminal court transfer. Conflicts over the transfer issue command the clearest and most candid dispute over the juvenile-criminal

The Youth Criminal Justice Act is clearly an effective bill. Since the introduction of YCJA, crime for youth has been decreasing at a rapid rate. (Show graph) In this graph you can see that since the start of the bill (which was introduced in 2003) there has been a huge dip in “Total youth court cases”. Following that statistic the other categories have notably been decrease along with it. How do they achieve this? The YCJA guides youth. Instead of just tossing them like they are some criminal that serve their time and head off, the bill provides things like counselling and community service to teach them their wrong doing and send them off as useful citizens that's shouldn't be coming in and out of prison constantly. Witout a doubt this would
