It is shocking to know that before 1967 youths in the United States did not have the same rights as adults in court. Before the landmark case In Re Gault individuals underage were not promised the freedoms under the fourteenth amendment. The court system did not take juvenile delinquent cases as seriously. It was almost as if they brushed the delinquents under the rug and put them into a detention center the first chance they got. The Supreme Court came to the conclusion that in the case of In Re Gault the requirements for due process were not met. This has turned into a landmark case because it has altered the way the juvenile delinquent court system runs.

The Jaycee Lee Dugard case contributed to the overhaul of assessment of risks, needs, and management of offenders within California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation program. Specifically, the role, importance, and connection to risk and needs assessment of offenders in community based correction (Bayens, pg. 91). Phillip Garrido was charged with kidnapped and sexual assault of Jaycee Dugard over 18 years span (1991-2009). The aggravating details arise from the incident is that Garrido was under parole supervision as a sex offender since 1999. During those years, Garrido was hardly supervised due to improper classification as low-risk sex offender and failure of background research. The classification error led to numerous additional fault and oversights regarding the handling of Garrido by correctional officials and possible earlier emancipation of Dugard. In hindsight, this case brought to light what may occur when offenders are improperly assessed and classified. As a result, officials began to institute a field training program to pair veteran parole agents with rookies, restricting parole academy to train agents in classifying sex offenders and spotting deception, utilize instruments that agencies can use to assess the risk and special-needs offenders, and how to accurately and at what stages to assess risk and needs of offenders (Baynes,
In this practicum I will narrate an interview that was done with a Hispanic parent. I will describe her and her family structure. I will also elaborate on her involvements in her children academics, and teacher parent relationship. Also better ways to encourage parents to get involved in their children education will be added, and how teachers can assist with making the parents feel welcomed inside of the classroom.
Per the website Study.com (n.d.), Juvenile Probation Officers’ primary job duties are supervising youth who have been in the juvenile justice system. Typically, these juvenile offenders have recently been released from juvenile detention and have returned to live with their families. The purpose of a Juvenile Probation Officer is to prevent the juvenile from reoffending. To prevent reoffending the Juvenile Probation Officer regularly meets with the juvenile and their families to ensure the juvenile is following the guidelines of the courts ("Juvenile Probation Officers | Job Description and Duties," n.d.).

The CP provided Mrs. Navarro with information about SCR and mentoring programs for Tyler to explore. Mrs. Navarro reported that she enrolled Tyler and Sidney for the PAL afterschool program, but Tyler refuses to attend-so, the child’s application is placed on hold, according to Mrs. Navarro. Tyler was questioned as to why he is not going to the after school program and based on the child response, he could not provide a proper answer.
At one point Jim goes to the police station to inform them of what happened during the “Chickie-run” and Buzz’s death; however, the desk sergeant brushes Jim aside as if what he had to say was not important. I believe law enforcement today would be quick to acknowledge juveniles and try to get them the necessary help they need. One conflicting thought I have is how law enforcement released all the juveniles at the beginning of the film without any repercussions. In today’s justice system I believe juveniles would not have been let off with a slap on the wrist, but instead would be held accountable for their actions along with much needed counseling and/or therapy. I believe the justice system in the film clearly failed these juveniles in the sense of not giving them the help needed in order to prevent future delinquent acts. If the necessary help had been given it might have prevented Plato’s and Buzz’s untimely
have had a positive drug test while they are in prison, they could be getting out of prison back into the community, or they just might not meet all the qualifications for the residential drug abuse program (Federal Bureau of Prisons, 2012).
Fare v. Michael C. is a case from 1979 where the United States Supreme Court reviewed what would make a juvenile’s confession inadmissible in court (Elrod & Ryder, 2014). The case begins with the respondent, Michael C., a 16-year-old juvenile being taken into custody by Van Nuys police in California on the suspicion of murder. He was immediately taken to the police station for questioning. Prior to the beginning of questioning, police fully advised Michael of his rights under Miranda v. Arizona. At the beginning of the questioning, Michael, who was on probation in the Juvenile Court, asked for his probation officer to be present. The police officers denied his requests and started the questioning process because Michael advised that he was willing to speak

This interview was verbal with the child’s mother. She was willing to do the interview and answer as honest as possible. When I was conducting this interview I was a little nervous because I did not know exactly how the parent would respond to my questions or their facial expressions. I wasn’t sure if she was going to answer all of the questions that I had to ask. I felt as if I was going to offend her in some type of way. These are all the feelings that were going on within while and even before I gave the interview. She ended up being very informative about the information that I needed to find out. She sort of seemed as if she didn’t want to answer a few of the questions. Overall the information that she provided was very helpful.
