Juveniles Sentenced as Adults and Juvenile Decline Hearings

A 2013 research brief examines the differences between juveniles tried as adults and those tried in juvenile court. The brief, written by the Washington State Statistical Analysis Center, reports data from 2007 through 2011, including differences between cases involving male and female offenders, offenders of different ages, and offenders of different races and ethnic groups.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics funded the report.
