Your report should also provide a recommendation on whether you support the practice of charging juveniles as adults or refute it.
Your paper must meet the following requirements:
Your written paper should be 2-3 pages in length not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include.

Cite at least three scholarly sources for this assignment.
