Juvenile Justice-2

timer Asked: Nov 22nd, 2015

Question description

A juvenile does not enjoy the privilege of being tried by a jury of his/her peers as is done in the adult system. The adjudication of the juvenile is solely in the hands of the judge who handles the case. At least in the adult system there is the chance for 12 people to decide your fate whereas a juvenile is totally at the mercy of one person who decides what is to be done with the juvenile. Is this a fair system for juveniles since we as a society want to give juveniles every chance to succeed in life? Is it fair to leave their fate up to one person when adults have the privilege of many minds coming together to arrive at a just verdict?
