Those individuals who suffer or are harmed from juvenile crime have, in the past, been excluded in the adjudication (specifically the sentencing) of their cases for reasons of confidentiality rights accorded to accused juvenile offenders. This paper examines a change in that trend for the development of policies and practices that will not only prosecute those juveniles who have committed offenses, but to include those who have been victimized in the court procedures.

From the Paper:

"In the adjudication of juvenile criminal offenses, the juvenile court should consider a number of factors. In the case of minor offenses, the court should be concerned with providing a sentence which best attempts to protect the community (i.e., with respect to both punitive and restorative justice). However, in the case of serious or violent criminal offenses, in addition to attempting to protect the community, there is a need to consider the rights of those who are the victims of juvenile crime."
