Juvenile offenders and victims : 1997 update on violence : statistics summary by Melissa Sickmund( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the second update to "Juvenile Offenders and Victims: a National Report" published in 1995. Drawing on new analysis of statistical series developed by various Federal agencies, it provides answers to the questions most often asked about trends in youth violence and victimization. This report provides information that the wave of violence by juveniles that the United States has experienced in the last 10 years may be subsiding. Serious violent crimes by juveniles dropped 25% between 1994 and 1995. The most recent data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation also report substantial declines in juvenile arrests for violence crimes. There is a reported decline of nearly 20% for murders by juveniles between 1993 and 1995. This report contains the raw information needed to address the problems of juvenile crime and victimization in sections on victims, offenders, and corrections. Current levels of juvenile crime, although below those of recent years, are still not acceptable. In addition, statistics continue to show high rates of victimization of juveniles. Twenty-five percent of all known juvenile homicide offenders were reported in the five U.S. counties that contain the cities of Los Angeles (California), Chicago (Illinois), Houston (Texas), Detroit (Michigan), and New York City. The forces that drove past increases in juvenile crime still exist, although there is more hope that society can counteract them. (Contains 39 graphs, 1 figure, 17 tables, 3 maps, and 39 references.)

State responses to serious and violent juvenile crime : research report by Patricia Torbet( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

State legislators across the country have responded with new efforts to change the authority and practice of the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Since 1992, 48 of the 51 state legislatures (including the District of Columbia) have made substantive changes to their juvenile justice laws. This report presents the first comprehensive analysis of these changes, as both an explanation of the reform process and a guide to those preparing new initiatives. Telephone surveys of justice practitioners in every state provided information about the changes that occurred as a result of new laws. Five common themes have emerged from the legislative analysis. The report is organized around these themes: (1) jurisdictional authority; (2) judicial disposition and sentencing authority; (3) correctional programming; (4) confidentiality of juvenile court records and proceedings; and (5) victims of juvenile crime. In general, justice for a subset of juveniles now involves increased eligibility for criminal, rather than juvenile, court processing and adult sanctions. The prosecutor is gaining an expanded role in system responses as the judge has less authority. These and other changes are expected to have considerable impact on minority youth. Each chapter contains references. (Contains 10 figures.) (Sld)

Court careers of juvenile offenders by Howard N Snyder( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Past research has shown that a relatively small number of youths are responsible for a large proportion of the offenses committed by juveniles, leading juvenile justice practitioners to ask what the courts can do to intervene early to deter these youth from committing further serious delinquent acts. To answer this question, a research study was undertaken to examine, from the court's perspective, the delinquent careers of chronic juvenile offenders. The research involved the analysis of the court career and offense patterns of nearly 70,000 youth in Phoenix, Arizona and the state of Utah. The findings suggest that juvenile courts have an opportunity to intervene in the lives of a large percentage of youth at a time when problems are apparent and also have the authority to effect change. The finding that a youth referred to court for a second time before the age of 16 could, with a high degree of certainty, be considered a chronic offender implies that the courts should not wait until the youth has returned for the fourth or fifth time before taking strong action. This report describes the research conducted in Arizona and Utah and the findings revealed. Chapter 1 discusses the need for court career research. Chapter 2 explains the sources of juvenile court career data. Chapter 3 describes youth with juvenile court careers; chapter 4 explores the development of juvenile court careers; and chapter 5 characterizes juvenile court career types. Chapter 6 presents a summary and conclusions. The appendix explains the recoding of offense codes into reporting codes. Numerous tables display the statistical data. (Nb)
