Identifying 18 to 23-year-olds who were sentenced under juvenile criminal law

A pilot (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

The so-called ‘Adolescentenstrafrecht’ came into effect on 1 April 2014. The ‘Adoles-centenstrafrecht’ expands the applicability of juvenile criminal law onto young adults in the age of 18 to 23. This pilot stems from an earlier study called ‘The adolescen-tenstrafrecht: policy theory and initial empirical findings’ and is part of the multi-year research program 'Monitoring and Evaluation of the ‘adolescentenstrafrecht’. The pilot aims to identify all 18 to 23-year-olds who were sentenced under juvenile criminal law, as indicated by the application of article 77c of the Dutch Criminal Code, based on registration data of the Public Prosecution Service [Openbaar Minis-terie] and the judiciary [zittende magistratuur].
