Are delinquent females are they treated unfairly?
Weegy: Girls are quite different. The most stunning difference is the degree of victimization they have experienced in their young lives. [ [ Close to 70% of girls in the juvenile justice system have histories of physical abuse, compared to the approximate rate of 20% for teenage females in the general population.5 Sexual abuse is also prevalent. Surveys of females in the juvenile justice system and in shelters report rates of sexual abuse and assault of over 70% versus 32% for boys.6 The result is that many girls run away to escape, endangering their lives and sometimes engaging in prostitution to survive. The lack of protective factors that exist in the families of abused and neglected girls, such as close parental supervision, appropriate discipline, and effective parental role models, facilitates girls? derailment into the juvenile justice system.7 Characteristics of abuse and neglect such as the lack of social controls at home, the effects of victimization, including depression, anxiety and psychiatric symptomology, and family dysfunction all contribute to the derailment of girls from the path of healthy childhood. Girls who commit juvenile offenses have significant therapeutic needs. Unfortunately these needs usually have not been met by the family and are not being recognized and treated by the juvenile justice system. A study of girls in the California juvenile justice system by the National Council on Crime and Delinquency found: n more than 95% of the girls lacked a stable home environment; n more than 54% of the girls reported having mothers who had been arrested or incarcerated; and n 46% had fathers who had been incarcerated.8 The home environment enhances the opportunities of delinquent girls to engage in relationships with deviant friends, relatives, and potential mates and to model their antisocial behavior:9 yet another step on the path to derailment. Most girls in the juvenile justice system will become mothers. In fact many have ... (More)

What is sentencing? How does sentencing influence corrections? How can corrections professionals improve sentencing so that it improves the correctional system overall?
Weegy: In law, a sentence forms the final explicit act of a judge-ruled process, and also the symbolic principal act connected to his function. [ The sentence can generally involve a decree of imprisonment, a fine and/or other punishments against a defendant convicted of a crime. Those imprisoned for multiple crimes, will serve a consecutive sentence (in which the period of imprisonment equals the sum of all the sentences), a concurrent sentence (in which the period of imprisonment equals the length of the longest sentence), or somewhere in between, sometimes subject to a cap. If a sentence gets reduced to a less harsh punishment, then the sentence is said to have been "mitigated". Rarely (depending on circumstances) murder charges are "mitigated" and reduced to manslaughter charges. However, in certain legal systems, a defendant may be punished beyond the terms of the sentence, e.g. social stigma, loss of governmental benefits, or, collectively, the collateral consequences of criminal charges. ] (More)

What is more important—freedom of press to publish pictures and names of juvenile offenders or juveniles’ rights to private court proceedings? Explain your answer.
Weegy: This type of question is very open ended and every individual will have their own opinion and answer. [ My opinion is that juveniles' rights should be protected, as they are not yet adults and while they should be held accountable for their actions and punished accordingly, I do not think that it is the public's business. Some minors may not yet fully grasp right and wrong and while many may, there are still a smaller group that do not and as the rules cannot be applied to only certain juveniles, I think the law must apply to all. I think it is the Government's responsibility to protect minors and their privacy. For example, a child may steal a loaf of bread, because his family has no money to feed him. As a minor, this child is not making a decision to be in this situation and has no way to get out of it and while stealing is wrong, you can see how it is completely different than an adult doing the same thing, as an adult has the option of going to a food bank and a child does not know about those (or one would assume). I fully support protecting the right of juvenile offenders. ] (More)
