Supreme Court reaffirms important juvenile justice principles

In our post earlier this week, we noted that there are some important and fundamental differences between juveniles and adults, and those differences need to be reflected by the criminal justice system. Because their brains are still developing, teenagers have more difficulty with things like impulse control and predicting the consequences of their actions.

Why juveniles may benefit from experienced representation

When young people make certain kinds of mistakes, they are told that things will be fine. After all, individuals are meant to learn from their mistakes and learning is the hallmark of youth. However, when young people make other kinds of mistakes, they can be made to face consequences that may affect them for the rest of their lives. Young people cannot always distinguish between the kinds of mistakes that will lead to reassurance and the kinds of mistakes that will lead to life-altering consequences.

Think a first time DUI is no big deal in Minnesota or North Dakota? Think again.

A driving under the influence arrest -- even a first time one -- is a big deal. Some people think that a first time offense is just a slap on the wrist, but the truth is that even just one DUI can have serious consequences that will affect a person for years to come.

Minnesota, North Dakota DUI questions put before Supreme Court

Every state in America has laws that require individuals to submit to a blood-alcohol concentration testing in cases of suspected drunk driving. In most states, refusal to submit to a blood, breath or urine test will result in license revocation. But around a dozen states have gone so far as to make test refusal a crime in and of itself, including Minnesota and North Dakota.
