Female offenders in the juvenile justice system : statistics summary by Eileen Poe-Yamagata( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document analyzes patterns in the arrest, judicial management, and correctional placement of female offenders. Data are from several federal databases, including the Children in Custody Census. In 1993, U.S. law enforcement agencies made an estimated 570,100 arrests involving females under the age of 18. Although male offenders still account for most delinquent acts, the relative growth in juvenile arrests involving females was more than double the growth for males between 1989 and 1993. While juvenile arrests for violent crimes increased 33% for males in that period, they increased 55% for females. Findings of this study support the popular contention that female delinquency has increased relatively more than male delinquency in recent years. Juvenile crime is still predominantly a male problem, but if recent trends continue, female delinquents will occupy even more of the time and attention of policymakers, service providers, court officials, law enforcement agencies, and communities and will require more correctional rehabilitation and education. Ten sources are listed for further reading. (Contains 4 figures and 16 tables.) (Sld)

City life and delinquency--victimization, fear of crime, and gang membership by Leonard D Savitz( Book )

7 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over 500 black and 500 white boys born in 1957 and attending Philadelphia schools were interviewed along with their mothers. The data were analyzed to discover how educational aspirations, social values, quality of life, fear of crime, victimization, family structure, father-son interaction, social attachments, and gang affiliation affected the development of delinquent behavior. Mothers and sons who limited or lowered their educational goals to high school included youths with much higher delinquency rates than those with higher aspirations. Social class, however, accounted for more differences in delinquency rates than educational aspirations. A high proportion of all subjects expressed fear of many places. For Blacks, family size and father-son interaction were more important in determining delinquency rates than for whites. Black youths with the lowest delinquency rates came from families reporting a high quality of neighborhood life. The data on education and the family are in greater accord with social control than with strain theories, although some subgroups have been identified for which strain may be the better explanation for high delinquency rates.

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

4 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 249 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)
