youth development

Focusing on the Steinberg & Scott (2003) article( attached below) , what issues in

 

the justice process cannot be resolved by looking at

 

developmental information? For example, in three recent

Supreme Court cases (Roper v. Simmons, Graham v. Florida;

 

Miller v. Alabama) this type of information (e.g., youth

 

 

development) was used—in part—to limit severe sanctions for

 

offenses committed by youth.

 

2. What type of information should be used in terms of placing

 

boundaries on sanctions for juvenile offenders? Can

 

understanding developmental processes better inform juvenile

 

justice practice and policy? How so?

 

3. Thinking about all of the readings collectively, what are the most

 

important points to be drawn from these readings?

 

3-4 pages, APA format, No plagairism
