Abstract:

Juvenile competency assessment is an emerging under-studied phenomenon. This study aimed to investigate demographic, social, psychiatric and criminal correlates of competency. The sample comprised 390 juveniles admitted to the Los Angeles County Juvenile Mental Health Court between 2001 and 2009. All variables were ascertained through court records. The majority of the sample were aged between 12 and 16 and of racial/ethnic minority status. Of those with proceedings suspended, 69% were charged with violent or felony offenses. Determining factors associated with incompetence is imperative to identifying those who may benefit from competency training, mental health, educational and rehabilitative services.
