Judges’ decision-making about juveniles’ adjudicative competence: Against whom to compare juveniles’ adjudicative competency abilities

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



Abstract:

This study investigated whether judges compare juvenile defendants’ adjudicative competence abilities to those of other juveniles or those of adults, and whether this distinction impacts judges’ views of the defendants’ capacities. 342 judges reviewed a hypothetical competence evaluation of a juvenile defendant and answered questions about the youths’ adjudicative competence and the reference group against which the youth was compared. Judges rated the juvenile defendant as significantly more competent when compared against another juvenile defendant than against an adult defendant. Similar findings were observed across legal setting (juvenile vs. adult court), defendant’s age, and defendant’s level of psychosocial maturity.
