Juvenile Justice System

Juvenile Justice System

Introduction

Juvenile courts systems are usually meant for young offenders. The courts have different authorizations all intended to correct the young ones. In the present situation, states are making significant steps to ensure that the institutions make much sense to young adults. The focus of most juvenile institutions has been to transform the behaviors of the young ones. Justice systems across the world aim to ensure that those with wrongdoing are rebuffed and reprisal is offered to the casualties and family members. Justice systems are based on the principle of disciplining alongside restoration (Zimring, 2018). However, depending on the nature of the crime in question, the approach might change from recovery to more of disciplining the wrongdoer.  The difference of a juvenile justice system and an adult justice system is that the young ones might not be aware of the wrongdoing or the law but adults, on the other hand, are aware of this and ignorance to the law is not defense (Guarino-Ghezzi, 2017).

Young adults and adolescents do not have many experiences since they have not lived as much as adults. Most of the wrongdoing among adolescents is the lack of role models who can guide them on what is right or wrong. Young adults are believed to copy much from their surroundings or the people they look up to.
