Pre-trial detention of juveniles in practice

Pre-trial detention of juveniles in practice

An explorative and quantitative research of judicial decisions and population characteristics (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

This explorative and quantitative research sketches the practice of pre-trial detention of juveniles in juvenile criminal cases in the Netherlands, and the characteristics of the concerned juvenile suspects. The central research questions are:

  1. Under what circumstances and for what reasons is pre-trial detention of juveniles requested and ordered, the enforcement of an order for pre-trial detention suspended or the order implemented in an alternative way?
  2. What are the characteristics of these juvenile suspects?
  3. How does the imposition of pre-trial detention relate to the sentence in juvenile criminal cases and does it have any ‘preliminary judicial effects’?
  4. Can – based on the findings related to the questions under 1, 2 and 3 – statements be made about the development of alternatives to pre-trial detention of juveniles in juvenile institutions and, if answered in the affirmative, what statements?
