Annotation: THE AUTHORS EXAMINE JUVENILE JUSTICE THROUGH THE USE OF CRIME CONTROL, DUE PROCESS, AND REHABILITATION MODELS.
Abstract: EACH MODEL IS EXAMINED TO DETERMINE THE IMPLICATIONS OF EACH PREDOMINANT VALUE FOR THE GOALS, PROCESSES, AND PROGRAMS OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM. THE ROLES OF LAW POWER, DETENTION AND ADJUDICATION, AS WELL AS PROCEDURES FOR THE DISPOSITION OF CASES ARE OUTLINED AS THEY PERTAIN TO OR ARE DICTATED BY EACH OF THE MODELS. INHERENT CONTRADICITONS, AS WELL AS AREAS OF OVERLAP, ARE NOTED. THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS SAID TO BE, IN REALITY, A MIXED MODEL. EACH OF THE INDIVIDUAL ASPECTS (LAW, POWER, ECT.) IS DESCRIBED AS IT FUNCTIONS IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF OFTEN-CONFLICTING VALUES.
Index Term(s): Crime control model; Due process model; Juvenile justice system; Models; Rehabilitation
