Should Juveniles Be Tried As Adults?

90 Words1 Page

I do not think that juveniles should be tried as adults. I believe that juveniles should have another chance after they serve their time. There are certain jurisdictions that will try juveniles as adults. The offense committed by the juvenile determines the punishment. If a juvenile committee an adult crime, then he or she can be tried as an adult. An adult crime can be murder, armed robbery, and the position of drugs. Other offenses like being out past curfew or minor infraction would be charged as a juvenile crime.
