Question 1:
The Week 5 lesson in this course examined some external influences that might cause a juvenile to participate in delinquent activity. One of these external influences was associated with the interactions a juvenile engages in while attending school.
Compose an essay of 500 – 700 words that identifies at least three (3) influences or factors that occur in the school setting that might cause a juvenile to participate in delinquent behavior. As part of your response discuss why some juveniles choose to avoid delinquent behavior while others decide to participate in delinquent behavior despite the fact that the majority of students are exposed to these same influences or factors within a school setting.

Compose an essay of 500 – 700 words that identifies and describes at least two (2) landmark court decisions directly related to the way the criminal justice system must handle a juvenile offender. As part of your discussion, explain the key differences in how a juvenile offender is handled by the criminal justice system as opposed to an adult offender as a result of these landmark court cases, being sure to highlight the reasoning behind these differences.
