The Neglect of the “Family” in Juvenile Court Processes: Examining the Role of the Family and Race/Ethnicity in Juvenile Court Outcomes

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Juvenile court research continues to examine the varying ways in which race/ethnicity influence court outcomes. While the literature in this area continues to grow, minimal theoretical and empirical attention has been placed on the role of the family in juvenile court processes (e.g., detention, adjudication, and disposition). In this study, we examine how family characteristics such as marital status, family criminality/delinquency, and histories of abuse within the family influence juvenile court processes and decisions. We then go further to analyze the ways in which these familial dimensions may differentially impact racial/ethnic minority youth. We rely on quantitative and qualitative (e.g., juvenile probation case file narratives and interviews with court officials) data from the Maricopa County Juvenile Court to examine these relationships.
