An Analysis of Juvenile Court Laws in Mississippi.
Carter, Walter S., III
Statutory laws, case laws, and model laws have been provided in this report as a basis for comparing Mississippi's juvenile laws with other juvenile laws. Since legislation concerning juvenile courts is vast, complete legislation is only provided for the State of Mississippi and two model juvenile court acts. Discussion, however, is provided which depicts the status of legislation of other States concerning certain areas of juvenile court law which appear to be of concern to many State legislators. The areas of concern discussed include right to counsel, admissibility of statements, right to trial by jury, right to pretrial release, fingerprinting, publicity of juvenile proceedings, inspection of juvenile records, and expungement of juvenile records. Mississippi case law and other case law are also discussed, and recommendations for legislative action presented. (Author/JF)
