Punishing very serious crimes committed by juveniles

Punishing very serious crimes committed by juveniles

Summary

The aim of the study is twofold:

  • To provide insight into the way in which judges react to very serious crimes committed by juveniles.
  • To determine whether significant differences exist between the courts in the punishment of these sort of crimes.

This study is a follow up to a previous study into the specific nature and scope of the forms of serious criminal behaviour committed by juveniles from 14 to 16 years old, whether individually or in groups, and to examine the sentences passed by judges.
