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
