Recent study illustrates that nearly two (2) million juveniles are processed
through juvenile courts across the United States each year. Depending on the
nature of the crime, juveniles may face detention or incarceration if they are
convicted. Given the fact that many courts are reluctant to incarcerate criminal

    Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
