The overall flow of a juvenile and adult through the criminal justice system follow very similar paths. However, along the way there are unique differences in how juveniles must be handled by criminal justice personnel to ensure their rights are protected.
In your initial response, identify two different steps in the criminal justice process flow where juveniles must be treated differently. Explain the steps criminal justice professionals must take in both steps you identified to ensure the rights of juveniles are protected. Conclude your response by explaining why it is important to provide these additional protections for juveniles.
In your response posts to classmates, evaluate the reasons provided by the classmate concerning why juveniles require additional protections. If you agree with the reasons given by the classmate, provide additional justifications for these protections. If you disagree, respectfully discuss why you do not believe the reasons given by the classmate are accurate.
