2 page(s)
Harms, P.
Reports on the nature of robbery cases handled by juvenile courts between 1989 and 1998. During this time, males accounted for the majority of juvenile robbery cases. Research findings also include the fact that the number of robbery cases handled by juvenile courts peaked in 1995 and then decreased. In 1998, most adjudicated robbery cases resulted in placement or probation, and court processing of such cases varied little for males and females. This Fact Sheet is based on the Report Juvenile Court Statistics 1998.
