Join Attorney George Parnham as he examines the legal and psychiatric analysis involved in a juvenile's development in criminal proceedings and the importance of mental maturity and brain development in determining responsibility. Joined in part by psychiatrist Dr. Axelrad, Mr. Parnham reviews the factors considered in determining a child's culpability when making such an assessment and the most prevalent case law from the turn of the century to the present. Specifically, this course focuses on the issues that apply to cases involving juveniles who commit criminal acts and are prosecuted in the Criminal Justice System (both juvenile and the adult justice system). This program concludes by predicting what will be in store for the future of juvenile delinquency legislation.
