Scenario: 

You are a juvenile corrections officer tasked with making recommendations to a judge for a juvenile’s entire course of treatment. You can advise on the sanctions they should receive; the components of their correctional treatment; the programs, training, or institutions that should assist them; any alternatives or special conditions to consider; and terms for their aftercare and transition back into the community.

Write a 525- to 700-word correctional dispositional plan for a juvenile.

Choose 1 of the following juveniles to use as an example case study for this week’s assignment:

  • Donovan from “Second Chance Kids” (see this week’s University Library Videos)
  • Rolon from “Second Chance Kids”
  • Shawn from Juvenile Justice
  • Jose from Juvenile Justice
  • Manny from Juvenile Justice
  • Marquese from Juvenile Justice
  • Gina, from the Ch. 11 Critical Thinking Exercises #3 (p. 313)
  • Any of the juveniles from the Week 3 court session videos

Note: If you choose an example with a known correctional plan, do not propose the same plan from the original case study. Make your own recommendations for a different process for the juvenile’s treatment.

Complete the following in your recommended plan for the juvenile:

  • Summarize the outcome of the adjudication process and the disposition in this case.
  • Describe the treatment of the juvenile in this situation.
  • Explain how law enforcement and the courts might have interacted differently with this person as a juvenile than if he or she had been an adult.
  • Explain the risk factors that need to be considered in the assessment of this juvenile.
  • Explain how the combination of factors considered in this case were connected and influenced the original outcome, if at all.
  • List any additional information you would like to have before considering other correctional treatments for the juvenile.
  • Recommend 2 alternative correctional strategies for this juvenile: 1 that includes a correctional program that exists in your state and 1 other potential option.
  • Explain how you could monitor, measure, report, and support the juvenile’s progress through treatment.
  • Justify your plan with evidence that supports your recommendations.
