Juvenile Court: A Judge's Guide for Young Adults and Their Parents provides important information about the most common types of offenses committed by young people, the specifics of the citation, and how to prepare for a court hearing. Author Leora Krygier gives readers an overview of the juvenile court justice system, and then walks them through the process of a citation-from the moment a citation is written, to arraignment, and disposition of their case. Juvenile Court also gives guidelines and tips on how to avoid getting into trouble again and from facing future citations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Krygier is clearly a youth advocate and writes the book from a place of care and concern for teens who find themselves in complicated, unfamiliar situations....Although individual laws and juvenile court systems differ from state to state, Krygier's information still feels thoroughly discussed. Her approach is serious and straightforward, but remains highly readable as a guide or a reference manual. * VOYA, February 2009 *
From speeding tickets to curfew violations to drug- and alcohol-related issues, Krygier explains court terminology and due process in a clear and concise...manner. The highlighted tips on many pages offer sound advice on issues such as how to dress for court, how to address a judge, and how to stay out of trouble in the first place.... The text itself provides a solid, honest view of the juvenile justice system. The book includes a helpful compendium of documents that one might come across in the judiciary process. * School Library Journal, March 2009 *
This title is a sensible guide to scan yourself and put in your repertoire for instant access. You could save a life. Be ready. * Library Thing *
Krygier provides an overview of the entire juvenile criminal justice process, from the initial police detainment through court appearances and sentencing. She gives specific advice on how to best make one's case to the court....Tips on preparing for court hearings and eye-opening excerpts from actual letters written to the court by teens about their personal experiences in the system are invaluable. Presented in a straightforward and crisp manner, this is a crucial reference guide; but it can also serve to warn youths, and their parents, about the consequences of breaking the law. * Foreword Reviews, January 2009 *
