Judging Children as Children A Proposal for a Juvenile Justice System by Michael Corriero

Judging Children as Children A Proposal for a Juvenile Justice System


Judging Children as Children A Proposal for a Juvenile Justice System by Michael Corriero

An argument for more judicial discretion in sentencing children


The book reveals Judge Corriero's passion for justice and due process through his daily experiences, supported by extensive research; it is both personal and academic, instructive and moving. It is political and philosophical. Justice Emily Jane Goodman, The New York Law Journal Corriero deserves much praise for his thoughtfully critical challenge to the policy of prosecuting children as adults. At the least, Corriero's strong embrace of a revised legal structure for juvenile justice, planted firmly in the soil of judging children as children, should foment interest in further exploration of this thorny legal terrain. Criminologists, child advocates, criminal justice experts, child development specialists, judges, lawyers, public policy makers, legislators, social workers, behavioral scientists, psychologists and psychiatrists are among those who professionally may benefit greatly from scrutiny of the information and ideas put forth by Corriero.
