This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

juveniles is that kids don’t have the right to a trial by jury because their “peers” would be kids as well, without the necessary knowledge of laws. Juvenile offenders also don’t have the right to bail or a public trial. Kids don’t have public trials because their records are locked so if and when they rehabilitate, they aren’t haunted by their mistakes as a child for the rest of their lives. In essence, they get a second chance. When it comes to court rulings or dispositions, kids have to take the “punishment” from a judge whether they like it or not. The judge will try and find a sentence that will be in the best interest of the juvenile- unlike adult rulings whose focus on punishment and “corrections”. The purpose of a juvenile sentence is primarily to allow the kid an opportunity to reform and “grow up.” Mandatory Question: From the book Newjack please answer the following questions:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
