Abstract

First of a two-part series on Maine's juvenile justice system. Portland police estimate that 90 percent of the individuals who have contact with the juvenile justice system are never heard from again, another 5 percent commit more offenses before going straight and the final 5 percent remain as chronic offenders. Juvenile crime is a growing problem in Maine, but the current system of juvenile justice offers little hope of rehabilitating chronic offenders. Includes profiles of three juvenile offenders.

Subjects
