Presenter: Ann D. Bunting, PhD

This case touches upon an area of current societal concern, the increasing incidence of violent crimes by juveniles and the response among state legislatures to prosecute them as adults. One problem society now confronts is that these offenders are being released in the prime of their lives, after having spent many of their developmental years in prison.

In the case study, the quandary facing residents in one neighborhood resulted from the physical and sexual assault on a female neighbor by another neighbor, a fifteen-year-old boy, in the early 1980s. The events described in the case study began one year before the assailant's release from jail, after fourteen years of incarceration, primarily in maximum security prisons.
