I don’t understand this Social Science question and need help to study.
- First, demonstrate the understanding of what the authors mean by “diversion-oriented system” versus “punitive- or punishment-oriented system.”
- Second, offer the perspective on whether a shift toward a “diversion” and away from a “punishment” (arrest, court processing, court trial, possible detention) model for dealing with juvenile offenders would be effective in the U.S. juvenile justice system.
- Third, find an example of a diversion-oriented model that has been applied by a U.S. state or county juvenile court system, and describe its main features.
- Finally, suggest how you think a diversion-oriented shift might impact case processing and caseflow management.
