        Tribal Youth

        The federal criminal justice response to tribal youth varies by the state in which the offense occurred, the nature of the offense, the availability of community and confinement-based services, and discretionary decisions made by tribal, state, and federal justice agencies. Cases involving tribal youth in the federal system may result in 1) a delinquency adjudication and court-ordered supervision and out-of-home placement, or 2) the youth being transferred to adult status and prosecuted and sentenced as an adult.
