Abstract:

In the Ventura School, California's showcase juvenile prison, inmates discuss how drugs and alcohol, lack of family support, and gang involvement have influenced their lives. The program also looks at Adult Time for Adult Crime, the Dade Co., Fla. program which sends more kids to adult court than any other in the U.S. Those who prosecute, defend, and judge young offenders explain how our society has come to the point where the age of the defendant is no longer a mitigating factor--and how 14-year-olds are being sentenced to life behind bars. But there are alternatives to that kind of traditional sentencing of young, violent offenders which is explored in a report from the Last Chance Ranch, a work-study lock-up rooted in firm discipline, treatment, and rehabiliation.
