03. Juvenile Law
New Jersey's juvenile justice system focuses on rehabilitation for juvenile offenders so that they are not penalized for the remainder of their lives for mistakes made during childhood. Juvenile court judges have a range of options when handling the cases that come before them. Depending on the nature of the charge, a judge is more likely to recommend probation and treatment programs rather than confinement to a juvenile facility. Nevertheless, the courts must balance the needs of the juvenile offender with those of the public’s safety.
