Interviewing and Interrogating Juvenile Suspects While Massachusetts’s statutes provide for the arrest of juveniles, they also impose different requirements as to the handling and detention of the offender. 1.

No child under fourteen (14) is to be put in a cell or otherwise securely detained for any reason. Such child may be held in a safe environment pending suitable disposition. 3. A juvenile between fourteen (14) and sixteen (16) and charged with a status (CHINS) offense only, by arrest or WARRANT, may not be placed in a cell or otherwise securely detained. 4.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
