How Juveniles Get to Criminal Court

Publication year: 1994  |  Cataloged on: Feb 25, 2014

All States allow juveniles to be tried as adults in criminal court under certain circumstances. A juvenile's case can be transferred to criminal court for trial in one of three ways - judicial waiver, prosecutorial discretion, or statutory exclusion from juvenile court jurisdiction. In any State, one, two, or all three transfer mechanisms may be in place. This first NCJJ/OJJDP publication on the topic of juvenile transfer to criminal court, presents a summary of 1992 statutes.
