Annotation: THE NEW WASHINGTON STATE JUVENILE CODE IS REVIEWED, AND CAREER CRIMINAL PROGRAMS FOR HARDCORE JUVENILE OFFENDERS ARE SUGGESTED.
Abstract: A SENIOR DEPUTY PROSECUTOR DESCRIBES THE AIMS OF THE NEW CODE AS TO (1) PROTECT CITIZENS; (2) FACILITATE THE INVESTIGATION OF SUSPECTS; (3) HOLD OFFENDERS ACCOUNTABLE; (4) PROVIDE JUST PUNISHMENTS; (5) INSURE DUE PROCESS IN BOTH ADJUDICATED AND DIVERTED CASES; (6) PROVIDE FOR TREATMENT; (7) ENCOURAGE COMMUNITY-LEVEL SERVICES FOR OFFENDERS; (8) PROVIDE FOR RESTITUTION; AND (9) LIMIT COURT POWERS. DETERMINATE SENTENCES ARE ACHIEVED THROUGH A SYSTEM THAT ASSIGNS POINTS BASED ON THE OFFENDERS' AGES, THEIR CURRENT OFFENSES, AND THEIR PRIOR CRIMINAL HISTORIES. SINCE PRIOR CRIMINAL HISTORIES AFFECT THE DESIGN OF THE SENTENCES, HARDCORE OFFENDERS ARE MORE SEVERELY DEALT WITH. HOWEVER, CAREER CRIMINAL PROGRAMS FOR HARDCORE OFFENDERS HAVE PROVED EFFECTIVE IN CRIMINAL COURTS AND COULD FURTHER HELP IN THE PROTECTION OF THE PUBLIC FROM CHRONIC JUVENILE OFFENDERS. THE AUDIOTAPE CASSETTE IS SUITABLE FOR GENERAL AUDIENCES. A TABLE OF CONTENTS IS INCLUDED, BUT OTHER SUPPORTING MATERIALS ARE NOT PROVIDED.
