Juveniles Prosecuted in State Criminal Court

Presents findings from the 1994 BJS National Survey of Prosecutors and other BJS statistical series, as well as data collected by the National Center for Juvenile Justice on juveniles proceeded against in State criminal courts. Among prosecutors' offices handling juvenile cases, almost two-thirds reported transferring at least one juvenile case to criminal court in 1994. Sixteen percent of the prosecutors' offices handling juvenile cases had written guidelines about the transfer of juveniles to criminal court. National data on juvenile cases judicially waived to criminal court show that the percentage of cases waived has remained relatively constant at about 1.47% since 1985. In 1994, 12,300 juvenile cases were judicially waived. 3/97 NCJ 164265
