A cornerstone of learning juvenile justice includes understanding the difference in treatment of juveniles
who enter the system, versus adults who enter the system. Initially, protective rights were not extended
to juveniles. However, through the process of appeal and evaluation by The Supreme Court, juveniles
were extended many of the same rights and protections given to adults who came into the formal legal
system. Read Kent v US and write a legal brief. A legal brief requires the following: the case title,
statement of the issue of the case, the details of the case background, and the way in which the court
ruled, with an explanation supporting that ruling.
Kent Versus USA Legal Brief
Statement on the issue
The dispute between Morris. A. Kent and the United States was concerned with the right to due process within the juvenile justice system. The judge in the juvenile court ordered Kent to delegate all power in the matter that was the subject of Kent over to the adult justice systems. Thus, it has deprived Kent of benefits of the juvenile system such as training, state-funded treatment and rehabilitation programs (Legal Dictionary 2018). The motivation behind the decision of the court for juveniles to refer this case before the District Court of District of Columbia is stipulated as being due to the seriousness of the charges, denying Kent of the opportunity to be considered a delinquent juvenile (Legal Dictionary 2018,). The case was re-argued several times before the court of appeal and then referred before the supreme court in order to decide on the violations of the due process rights.
The case was about a report of rape and robbery by an Washington DC woman against Kent. The results of previous investigation into the case put Kent in the scene of the crime.
