Example text

Both of these chapters depend on the theory of adolescence explored in Part I. Giving young persons “room to reform” into normal adulthood by diverting them from punishments that threaten to interrupt development is using the tools of a special court for the young to facilitate a learner’s permit theory of adolescence. FOUR The Common Thread Diversion in Juvenile Justice The first idea that should be grasped concerning the juvenile court is that it came into the world to prevent children from being treated as criminals.

We confront it whenever we talk at length with a group of college freshmen. We see it in our children’s lives and the lives of their friends. This is the problem of individual variation. Human beings simply don’t all grow up the same way. Competencies are acquired at different levels and in different orders. Kids vary enormously. Because this is so, a perfect fit between the realities of adolescent development and the law’s response to growing up would give each individual child his or her own personal statute book, designed to respond to individual developmental events with precisely timed changes in legal status.

Only the juvenile facilities are under the control of the juvenile court, but total secure incarceration is the best measure of total governmental control. The figure is formatted with each age group’s rate in 1971 expressed as 100, so that the changes over time are emphasized. 1 shows, the incarceration rates for the two groups were not greatly different in 1971: the 18- to 24-year-olds have a jail and prison rate that is 28 percent higher than the total public incarceration rate of 14- to 17-year-olds.
