Abstract

With the passing of juvenile crime policies by legislators to help protect society from the juvenile super-predator, the key question that must be raised is, has it made a difference? Juvenile crime policies have a great deal of impact on more than just the juvenile committing the crime. Understanding criminal court jurisdiction for juveniles helps illuminate the impact these policies have on the juveniles and communities in terms of who really suffers the punishment.
