Navigating the Juvenile Justice System: A Handbook for Juveniles and Their Families.
The juvenile justice system is complicated and can seem overwhelming. This handbook is designed to give some basic information to youths as well as parents, grandparents, foster parents, guardians, and other family members or friends of children who have been or may be in trouble with the law. This handbook is written to defendants in juvenile court, but with special tips for parents throughout the text and also a special section just for parental issues. It is hoped that this book will help juveniles become more aware of the their rights in the Texas juvenile justice system, as well as their options if they are in trouble with the law. (GCP)
