While I found this chapter interesting I also found it challenging as well. There was a section in this chapter that stated that back in 2006, there was around 66% of nonviolent cases that where transferred from a juvenile court to an adult court. That in my eyes is way to high of a number. I get the understanding that judges may not know what to do with habitual offenders because it is the same from my understanding in the adult world. It is like saying well they are never going to learn with the advantages in which they are seeking here, like programs or reform schools, so lets just pass the buck to the adult courts. Yet, while I was reading further a high majority of those cases just get over turned and they are released. We have all been young before and some have the mentality of nobody can touch me until someone does and it is like a snap back into reality. For some who growing up I have seen just don’t care or have no lack of snapping back. Their mentality is I am untouchable. I understand the frustration but why isn’t there something different that the courts can use? I feel that they say we are out of resources and maybe they are. I don’t like the idea of petty crimes regarding a juvenile being reprimanded to a criminal court. Just doesn’t sit well with me.
Your post make some excellent points here, and I absolutely agree that “passing the buck” is a great way to describe this. Juvenile court judges should carefully consider all potential outcomes and I personally think that we should work to close these loopholes.
What are the potential damages that can occur when a judge transfers non-violent offenders?
