Bulletin Examines Effects of Transfer of Juveniles to Adult Court Bulletin Examines Effects of Transferring Juveniles to Adult Court Cover Image

December 04, 2012

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has released, "Transfer of Juveniles to Adult Court: Effects of a Broad Policy in One Court." The bulletin examines the effects of transfer from juvenile court to adult court on a sample of serious adolescent offenders. The authors also discuss the implications of the findings for future changes in transfer statutes. The findings are the result of the OJJDP co-sponsored Pathways to Desistance study, which investigates factors that lead serious juvenile offenders to cease or continue offending.
