Should teenagers who commit violent or serious crimes be tried as juveniles or adults? Can we rehabilitate these young people to prevent future criminal behavior? With almost unprecedented access to juvenile court proceedings - which are usually closed to the public and rarely seen on television - Juvenile Justice follows four youth offenders through the Santa Clara County, California, juvenile courts, observing how the criminal justice system treats their cases and determines their fates. Filmed over 15 months, this report also talks with the judges, case workers, prosecutors and families of the young teens as well as some of those who were their victims.
