A Legal Perspective on the Juvenile Justice System
When a youngster comes before the court system, which actions are considered crimes and which are classified as delinquent acts? What happens to a juvenile offender’s record when he/she turns 18? How did the Pennsylvania Juvenile Justice Act of 1996 change the ways in which juvenile offenders are treated by the justice system? The answers to these questions are important not only to parents but also to those who work with juveniles. An experienced attorney and educator will address these issues and others that impact on juveniles who come before the Pennsylvania courts.
