Eligibilitywithin Juvenile’s Judicial Systems

TheAmerican’s juvenile courts have experienced a drastic change inprocedures as well as the purposes over the past few years. Thejuvenile’s operations have become similar to the adult criminalcourts since no legal distinction can be made between the two. Theage threshold that is used during the trial in adult court has failedwhenever an incident of juvenile violence strikes the nation. Thestate should strive towards abolishing the concept of delinquency andsubject all young people who violate laws under criminal courtregardless of their age.

TheSpecial treatment that they were subjected to because of their agelimit should not form the defending guard, but the allegedperpetrators tried as adults. This influence the transferability ofthe victims to the adults’ court tribunal to be tried equally asadults counterparts. However much the state can abolish sending youngoffenders to a separate court, the offender’s emotions, cognitions,social interaction will remain with a child. The judges andprosecutors, therefore, should design different new policies andprocedures to be used while handling young defendants.

Expandingboth adult and juvenile judicial court systems that offer diverseoptions dealing with offenders would help the current state. Theoption is considerable rather than adopting a new proposal that allowfor the two-way transfer of offenders who ascertain criminaltransferal criteria. The court system to be enacted should balanceall justice interests with the public safety as well as defendants’rights regardless of age limits. Individuals who are above 18 yearsof age are considered as adults and can have a mindset of reasoningas well as differentiating the right from wrong. They can, therefore,be transferred to an enclosed room or rehabilitated with a focus tooffer them counsel that change their mindset and dangerous behaviorsrather than putting them under punishment.
