In this assignment, you will choose a criminal case study from your own research or use one from the crime section of The Daily Chronicle website to examine the differences between the juvenile and adult court systems.

Read the case information and write a 2–1/2 page paper in which you:

  1. Summarize the facts of      the case.
  2. Examine how the      procedure would differ if the defendant or defendants were underage when      the offense was committed.
  3. Identify and discuss how      juvenile proceedings differ from adult criminal proceedings as well as the      differences in charges for the same crime.
  4. Define the waiver      process of transferring a juvenile into the adult court system.
  5. Make and support      recommendations for disposition based on the assumption that each      defendant in your selected case is a minor being tried as a juvenile.
  6. Use at least three      sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible,      relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at      least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing,      and citation, access the library or      review library guides.
