RUNNING HEAD: JUVENILE JUSTICE PROCESS AND CORRECTIONS 1 Juvenile Justice Process and Corrections Name CJA/374 Date Instructor JUVENILE JUSTICE PROCESS AND CORRECTIONS 2 Juvenile Justice Process Flowchart Crime Committed (Possession of a Concealed Weapon) Action Taken by Police (Detention) County Attorney Referral to Court Review (Petition) Remand to Adult Petition Filed as Court Transfer Hearing a Juvenile Adjudication Advisory Hearing Hearing Disposition Hearing Commitment to Commitment to AZ Department of Juvenile Corrections Intake Assess/ Classification Case Plan Release JUVENILE JUSTICE PROCESS AND CORRECTIONS 3 STATE OF ARIZONA DEPARTMENT OF JUVENILE CORRECTIONS INDIVIDUAL JUVENILE CORRECTIONS PLAN REGARDING THE CORRECTIONS PLAN FOR THE FOLLOWING JUVENILE: Youth Name: Xander L. Case ID: J100601 Date of Birth: 05/11/1995 Placement Date: 11/19/2012 PROJECTED CASE PLAN FOR JUVENILE: I. Youth problems which require placement at this level of care: Documented gang member; juvenile adjudications for purse snatching, breaking and entering, and drug possession; prior custody in a juvenile correctional facility; prior probation on two separate occasions; and pleaded guilty to charge of possession of a concealed weapon. II. Services to provide for the youth: Group therapy, drug use counseling, skills for life classes, anger management classes, and educational and vocational services. III. Duration of placement: Six months detention in an ADJC facility. IV. Desired outcome of the services and the measurement tool used to determine this: Improvement in behavior; improvement in coping skills that do not include drug use; improvement in staff and peer relations; and progress in education and vocational training. Staff members who include Arizona Juvenile Probation Officers and written documentation regarding progress and behavior will determine progress made toward completion of goals. V. Discharge Plan: Upon completion of six month detention in the juvenile correctional facility, the juvenile is required to serve one year of probation. In addition, as a JUVENILE JUSTICE PROCESS AND CORRECTIONS 4 condition of probation, the juvenile must enroll and attend AZTEC High School, which is a Charter School designed to provide educational opportunities and vocational training for students on probation who were not attending school. The juvenile will continue attending the school until he has completed his high school education, and received his diploma. Comments: Xander is a 17yearold African American male who encountered the juvenile court system for the first time at the age of 13. It is documented that Xander is a known gang member, and prior juvenile adjudications include purse snatching, breaking and entering, and drug possession. Xander has served one year in a juvenile detention facility, and completed two probation sentences. His current Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections Risk Assessment score is 2, which indicates a medium risk for recidivism. Despite the juvenile detention facility's failure to deter recidivism, the current corrections plan has the potential to rehabilitate the juvenile effectively. In addition to the corrections plan, the juvenile also has the support of his mother with whom he has a close relationship. The mother does not approve of his conduct, and has reported him to the police on prior occasions. This is an important factor because the juvenile will refrain from violating the terms of his probation to gain the approval of his mother if he knows she will report violations to his probation officer. Another important factor is the juvenile's desire to obtain his general equivalency diploma to make his mother proud. With the support of his mother, his desire to change, and help from the youth services provided during and after detention, his chance for successful rehabilitation is highly probable.
