Juvenile Court Youths and Adult Court Youths Incarcerated Together: Who Offends More?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

There is disagreement in the field as to where youths who commit serious crimes and are transferred to adult court (ACY) should be incarcerated. While youths placed in adult facilities experience high rates of victimization and suicide, the ramifications of placing ACY in juvenile facilities remain unknown. The present study examines differences in behavioral outcomes of ACY (N=103) and youth adjudicated in juvenile court (JCY; N=261) incarcerated in the same juvenile facility. Results suggest that, among youths incarcerated together, JCY exhibit more antisocial behavior than ACY. Specifically, JCY engage in a higher frequency and variety of violent offending than ACY.
