A Handbook for Juveniles and Parents on Maine's Juvenile Justice System.
This guide explains Maine's juvenile justice system so that juveniles and/or their parents can know what to expect or what to do in a situation involving juveniles, public officials and the law. Although it is geographically specific, it could serve as a model to other states. The booklet can serve as a checklist to make sure law enforcement officers, intake workers, attorneys, judges and other public officials are doing what is legally required of them. The sections focus on: (1) the people and terms which make up the juvenile justice system; (2) how these people work together; (3) a checklist of Constitutional and other rights of the juvenile and parent; and (4) special cases.
