Demographic and Clinical Influences on Juvenile Competence to Stand Trial

Abstract:

This study examined several threats to juvenile competence, including psychotic disorders, developmental disabilities, and young age. Language disorders, which can disrupt attorney-client consultation and testimony, were also considered. Evaluations (n=280) were conducted using a semi-structured interview. Psycho-legal functioning was predicted by age and several diagnostic categories. Similar to previous studies, increasing age was associated with less impairment, while psychosis and intellectual disability predicted more impairment. Youths with autism-spectrum disorders were especially vulnerable, suggesting that developmentally delayed youths are likely to have greater problems navigating the juvenile justice system.
