Juvenile Justice. Second Edition.
Eaneman, Paulette S.
These classroom materials are part of the Project Benchmark series designed to teach secondary students about our legal concepts and systems. This unit focuses on the California juvenile justice system. The materials describe the historical and legal development of the system, juvenile court procedures, correction facilities, and various creative alternatives to the corrections system. The second section defines such legal concepts as due process, jurisdiction, hearsay evidence, beyond a reasonable doubt, preponderance of evidence, and moral turpitude. Suggestions for two sample lessons using the materials are included. The first lesson focuses on the alternative ways to improve the juvenile justice system. The second lesson provides directions, sample materials, and simulation role description for a mock juvenile hearing. (DE)
