Juvenile offenders subjected to solitary confinement

Like their adult counterparts, teenagers can make mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes can cross the line into criminal behavior. From age-based offenses like underage drinking and curfew violations, to criminal offenses including drug charges and domestic violence, juvenile crimes are treated differently than adult crimes, often by being punished much less harshly. Nevertheless, ending up in the New Jersey juvenile justice system is still no walk in the park.

Juvenile crimes come with their own consequences

In the United States individuals who have not yet reached the age of majority are generally viewed as juveniles in the eyes of the criminal justice system. The juvenile law system is very different than the adult criminal justice system, and it requires specific expertise on the part of attorneys who handle these types of cases. Juvenile law, for example, consists of different procedures and different laws than the adult criminal system.

New Jersey anti-bullying law did not prevent recent incidents

September marked the implementation of New Jersey's new anti-bullying law, considered the toughest legislation against bullying in the nation. The law was enacted as a response to the 2010 suicide of a gay Rutgers University student who was spied on by his roommate who used a remote webcam to tape the student's romantic encounter with another man.
