Question Description

3 page double spaced paper on the topic. I would expect an overview of certifying juveniles as adults, two arguments (with scholarly references) both for and against the the process, and a conclusion



Joey is 15 years old and he and his 18 year friend (Carl) broke into drug house to steal their money and drugs. They did not believe anyone would be home but they realized the potential risk and each took a gun just in case. It turns out there were people home . The residents began shooting at Carl and Joey almost immediately however they did not hit anyone. Carl on the other hand hit all three of the residents, and Joey hit one. All three died. Joey has been arrested only one time before for possession of cocaine and was on probation with the juvenile system at the time of the crime. Bullets from Joey's gun were found in only one of the victims but its unclear whether the death was the result of Joey's or Carl's gun.

Something inside of me has a real problem with certifying a fifteen-year-old boy as an adult and sending him to prison for the next thirty years. I also have a real problem with him being adjudicated in the juvenile system and getting released in two years when he becomes an adult. The crime was hideous, and now three people are dead as a result of his actions. This situation sheds light on the bigger issue of certifying juveniles as adults. Using the instructions for this debate, convince me one way or the other [with research and facts] whether or not this is a good policy..

criminal system.

Introduction

Juvenile delinquency is the engagements of young people between the ages of 10 to 17
years into criminal activities (Kolivoski, Goodkind, & Shook, 2017). It also refers to those
children that persistently demonstrate mischievousness or disobedience. On the other hand, the
adult justice system is the trial of the lawbreakers who have already attained the age of 18 years
and above. According to our case, Joey is a 15-year-old who was involved in a robbery with
violence which ended up with the death of three people. In the juvenile court systems, there are
those instances that could lead to Joey being treated as an adult and get referred to an adult
criminal system.
